April 2023 Coalinga Service Rifle Championship

Updated: May 8, 2023

Held April 1st & 2nd, 2023 at Coalinga

Over 40 competitors participated in this past weekend's State Championship for the service rifle. This included 9 current Grizzlies of which 3 are new team members along with 3 Grizzlies alumni. A few Grizzlies highlights include: Brady Alford placing first for both days in the Sharpshooter classification. Day 1: Bo Kingshill placing second for the Expert classification. Day 2: Alec Brital placing second for the Expert classification. Hailey placing first with sitting in the Sharpshooter classification. High Junior for both days goes to Bo Kingshill and High Aggregate First Place for Sharpshooter classification goes to Brady Alford. For the EIC competition bronze awards go to Brady Alford, Bo Kingshill, Alec Brital and new Grizzly Wyatt Liu!

The Grizzlies received some key equipment to help support this technical and complex high precision sport. John-Alistair handed out custom-made cleaning kits along with additional cleaning case provided by the NRA. Additionally the team received different equipment necessary for reloading rounds provided by a generous sponsor.

We are also excited to report we will have 11 Grizzlies attending Nationals in July. This includes all our 4 new grizzlies with hometowns from Eureka to Temecula and places in between.

Reminder we have our annual Raffle ticket sales underway. Please buy at least 1 ten dollar ticket from a Grizzly to help cover expenses to send the team to Camp Perry Ohio for Nationals.

Thanks to all for who participated this past weekend! If you haven't, please register for the upcoming State Championship the first weekend in May.

Grizzlies Alumnus Miles Grove joined this past weekend's match. Congrats on achieving 3rd place in the Master classification aggregate for both days!
