With the first-ever Under-25 (U25) Nationals is in the books, by all measures the match was a success. This initial U25 National High Power Rifle Championship was a great experience for both the kids and the parents.

The NRA Whittington Center in Raton, NM, can be a difficult range to shoot, but all the kids handled it like true champions. There were rapid directional changes and high velocity winds that kept all of the shooters on their toes.

When all of the shots were downrange, it was Madison Bramley of Mesa, AZ, who snatched the win in the F-Open rifle category by out X-ing Kaycie Blankenship of Wittmann, AZ. Both fired a 1411 with Madison at 65X and Kaycie at 50X. The grand aggregate was fired over a course of 600 and 1000 yards for three days. Katie Blankenship, sister to Kaycie was third place winner firing 1406-46X.
