The Kearny JROTC Archery Team shot against the top ranked archery programs in the country to win the 2019 NASP Archery Championship for the state of California. The tournament took place primarily at the Kearny High School Archery range. The Komets showed up and had their most successful national appearance yet, claiming 1st place for the second consecutive year.
To win the state championship, a team earns points for placement in individual, team, and mixed team competition across multiple divisions. This year the championship was claimed by Kearny with an overall score of 1557. The competition was fierce with several strongcompetitors including schools like Madison, Morse, and Lincoln.
At last year’s tournament, Kearny walked away with 3 individual state trophies. This year our Komets had an even more impressive performance with 4 trophies, c/SGT Flannery, Christopher EID, also Team Commander, and c/CPL Rimmorin, Rainer SCT having huge performances in every match placing 2nd, and c/CPL Cazares, Jenna EID, and c/PVT Yefsky, Andrew SCC, placing 3rd against the very best in the state.
c/CPL Rainer Rimmorin had huge performances in every match on her way to being named the top shooter for Kearny. She absolutely demolished the competition!
"We really enjoyed this year," said Head Coach Marlon Rice. "We had a great deal of academic and athletic success, both of which are important to this program and will continue to be. I'm grateful to NASP for keeping this division and putting support behind California JROTC archery programs. We look forward to more schools and teams joining."
Congratulations to Coach Marlon Rice and the Archery Team on their incredible performance!
