WA-HI News

Walla Walla High School JROTC Rifle Team started their season this weekend by hosting the US Army Junior Air Rifle Sectional Match at Walla Walla High School. 44 shooters from Washington and Idaho converged on WAHI’s rifle range to compete for honors and an invite to the national championship match, held in Fort Benning, Georgia in January.
Precision-Class rifle shooters fired a 60 shot match from the unsupported standing position. Shots were scored on a decimal system, with a perfect dead-center shot scoring a 10.9 and lower scores radiating out from the target’s center. WAHI’s highest score was shot by senior Cadet Major Maximus Malone with a 581.1
“Max has done a lot of work in preparation for this match.” said Rifle Coach Mark Mebes. “In only his second competitive match as a precision shooter, it was great to see that work pay off here today.”
The Spokane Rifle Club’s Gold Team won the precision team match, with a score of 2339.3 beating out the Blue Devils by 32.7 points. The top precision class shooter at the match was Boise, Idaho competitor Elijah Spencer, who shot a 620.8. The Blue Devil scoring team for this match included Malone, Cadet Captain Raquelle Justice with a 575.8, Cadet Captain Tristan Scott at 575.2 and Rifle Team Captain Benjamin Nelson with a 574.5.
“We are pretty pleased with scores this consistent” commented Nelson after Saturday’s match. “Normally, this early in the year we are still trying to find our rhythm. These scores are encouraging.”
In the Sporter-Class, the match consisted of 20 shots fired prone, 20 shots standing and 20 shots from the kneeling position for a possible score of 600. The top score went to Cadet Clara Yang of University High School in Spokane Valley with a 533. WAHI’s Cadet Lieutenant Aviella Wilson came in 2nd place with a 514. 3rd place went to WAHI Cadet Command Sergeant Major Gerardo Soto at 510. Walla Walla High School JROTC’s Sporter team won the sporter match with a score of 2027 out of 2400, 87 points ahead of University High. Scoring members of the sporter team were Wilson, Soto, Cadet First Sergeant Chanze Martz and Cadet Master Sergeant Clayton Johnson.
“These Sporter scores are significantly higher than we fired this time last season” said Mebes. “Wilson and Soto have both competed before, but Johnson is a new addition to the team. It will be interesting to see how far they can go this year.”
Whether or not any teams from this match will receive an invite to the national match in Georgia will remain to be seen. Locations throughout the US are holding similar regional qualifiers.
The Blue Devils next match will take them to Lebanon, Oregon on November 5th for the first JROTC Cascade Mountain League competition of the 22-23 season.

Boys Federation: Young men set out to do community service. Past years have included leaf
raking, snow shoveling, and have even raised money for a family in need (adopt a family at
Christmas). They also sponsor many tournaments for students to get involved with, such as
badminton, corn hole, volleyball, Mario Kart, and smash ball. 

It is that time of year for leaf raking. The Boys Fed is going to do some community service and volunteer to rake leaves this fall for people who are in need of some assistance.

Both the boys and girls varsity teams placed second yesterday at the MCC District Championships.

Individual congratulations on the boys side go to District Champion Brody Hartley (bested the field by 1:16 sec) 6th place Gabe Coram, 8th place Ian Lash, and 9th place Turner VanSlyke.

More than twenty students have been gathering each week on Wednesdays after school in A129 to play Dungeons and Dragons. With the help of the students trained as Dungeon Masters, they craft a story line pieced together by creating a character with certain powers and characteristics and then rolling dice. All students are welcome to join! Text @dndwahi to 81010 to join the Remind, or join the Discord server: https://discord.gg/PmvgD2ps5U.
