William Allen, Elijah Adams and Lindsay Carr led the awards at Douglas High School during the recent American Legion Air Rifle Tournament.

American Legion Post 4 in Carson City helped sponsor the Douglas High Junior ROTC rifle program for the tournament on Jan. 18 at the high school’s indoor shooting range. The tournament is conducted on regional, state and national levels.

Allen, a sophomore, captured first-place in the Douglas event. Adams, a freshman, took second-place and Carr, a junior, took third-place.

Competitive shooting creates an equal playing field for all competitors. Both males and females participated in this event through Legion sponsorships.

Students use the .177 caliber air rifle. Competitors shoot from prone, standing and kneeling positions.
