Shooting Sports: High School Rifle Teams

Pocono Record - Girls making their mark on range. These are fewer and fewer all the time, but there still are high school rifle teams.

It doesn't say what rifles are being used, but given that they are shooting at 50 feet, I would guess .22 LR with my second bet being on air rifles.

Any way this is a nice article about the fact that the shooting sports are one of the few areas of competition where men and women can compete on an equal basis. (OK so the article is going on about "boys and girls" and since they are talking about HS kids, "girls" seems appropriate.) [KABA]
