Wildcats place 2nd at national championships / Shooting

The Oak Harbor High School precision rifle team finished second at the Civilian Marksmanship Program Navy JROTC National Championships Feb. 6-8 at Chandler, Arizona.

By placing second in the nation, the Wildcats — senior Lauren Crossley, junior James Hart and sophomores Alexis Kunze and Coen Duda — qualified for the All Service National Championship March 19-21 at Camp Perry Ohio.

In addition to Oak Harbor capturing second in the team competition, Hart qualified for the individual finals and finished fourth.

Senior Trevor Westman was the lone Wildcat competing in the sport division and finished 42nd, which placed him among the top quarter of the competitors.

Crossley, Hart, Kunze, Duda and Port Angeles’ Cheyenne Maggard make up the Sabertooth Shooting Team which recently won the state title and received invitations to a regional tournament in Sandy, Utah, and a national meet at Camp Perry this summer.

The Sabertooth Shooting Team just returned from the national smallbore and air rifle championships hosted by the Army Marksmanship Unit and placed 18th in the three-day combined event.

The Wildcats and the Sabertooth Shooting Team are coached by Dave Goodman, who was unable to attend the match in Chandler.
