Emma Thompson, who has repeatedly set and broke over nine of her own Navy Sporter JROTC National Records during the last few CMP 3x20 air rifle events, did so again on day 2 of the JROTC Regional Service Championship, held this past February. But, much like her other records, it didn’t stand for longin fact, it lasted less than 20 minutes.

Thompson recorded a new Navy JROTC Sporter Standing National Record score, but on the same relay, Jesseca Montcrieff outshot Thompson’s new score by one pointsetting the record for herself with a score of 189-4X.

The JROTC Regional Championships were held at Camp Perry, OH, Anniston, AL, and Las Vegas, NV.


Both junior girls gave incredible performances during the Regional Championships, finishing first and second, respectively, overall in the Navy Championship as well as among all of the JROTC Services. The exceedingly talented Thompson remarkably finished with an aggregate score 30 points above Montcrieffcompletely securing her place at the top of the sporter class.

With Regionals completed, the final step in the JROTC Service Championship competition series is the National Championship this March 23-25. Like the Regional events, the National match is a 3x20 air rifle competition, where competitors fire 20 record shots from three positions: prone, standing and kneeling. Admission is free for visitors who plan to observe the National Championships.
