Maspenock Junior Rifle League First Match

December 1 not only marked the first snow of the season but also the first match in the Maspenock Junior rifle league. The league consists of teams from Harvard Sportsman Association, Holliston Sportsmen's Association, Marlborough Fish and Game, Maspenock Rod and Gun Club, Maynard Rod and Gun and Southborough Rod and Gun Club.  The match was hosted at Southborough Rod and Gun Club and consisted of seven relays of seven shooters on the line each relay. Each relay was a mix of shooters from at least three clubs so the juniors all got a chance to shoot against other clubs.
The Maspenock league stresses safety, fun and marksmanship (in that order) to allow the participants to grow their skills in a safe and fun environment. Past participants in the league have gone on to shoot national matches, participate in the Junior Olympics and shoot for college teams.
Maynard Rod and Gun joined the league for the first time in this match. A group of over a dozen coaches and volunteers, who are dedicated to helping all junior rifle competitors succeed, make the league is made possible. This could be seen at the match with the assistance given to all competitors by all coaches regardless of club affiliation.
Each of the teams in the league is funded by a combination of their program fees, funding from the host clubs, various fund raisers and grants from the NRA foundation.  Please consider making a donation to the junior rifle program at your local club.
This year there will be three additional matches hosted by Southborough followed by an awards banquet at Marlborough. Spectators and guests are welcome at the events. 
The December 1 match was the first ever competition for some of the juniors and a refresher for some more-seasoned competitors. There were three concurrent matches; a prone-only match for the newest competitors and a three-position individual and team match. In the team match, the scores for the four best competitors are used.
In the prone-only contest, the first taste of competition for the participants, Marcus Mojica (Maspenock) took first with a score of 257, Noah White (Marlborough) second with 237 and Ryan Moore (Marlborough) third with 234.
 For the beginner three-position match Alex Biehl (Maynard) took first with a 193. In the intermediate match Gianna Ferrecchia (Marlborough) took first with a 206 and Ryan Darrow (Maspenock) took first for the advanced competitors with a 266.
In the team match, The Maspenock team had an aggregate of 1023, based on the scores of Dan Reynolds, Chris Rooney, Ryan Darrow and Tyler Lefebvre. Harvard is currently in second with an aggregate of 909 based on the scores of Mark Vicik, Anne Donaldson, Dana Cochrane, Griffen Milette and Coleen O'Shea. Marlborough Currently has third with an aggregate of 864 based on the scores of AJ Carmody, Colton Valchuis, Adam Amatucci and Gianna Ferrecchia. With three more matches in the season it's still up for any team to take it. 
Thanks go out to the head coaches of the teams, the assistant coaches and volunteers and especially the Southborough kitchen crew who kept everyone well feed with breakfast and lunch.
