CA Grizzlies Junior Team Takes High Civilian and High Jr. Titles in Infantry Trophy Match at Camp Perry

Here’s a feel-good story about dedicated, hard-working young people from California. The California Grizzlies Junior Rifle Team shot great in the Infantry Trophy competition at the NRA National Championships, winning not only the High Junior Title, but the Civilian Title as well. In fact the young Grizzlies squad beat ALL the adult teams except the powerhouse U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit Team coached by Emil Praslick III.

Dennis Santiago reports that: “The kids from California have once again proven that the adversity of onerous laws cannot keep skill and talent from prevailing on the field of sporting competition. They placed second overall behind Emil Praslick’s USAMU team.” This means the Grizzlies will receive both the High Civilian Team and High Junior Team awards for this year’s Infantry Trophy competition at Camp Perry. Way to go Grizzlies!
