Andrews High School’s Mark Ethan King recently won his division of the South Carolina Junior Olympic Match.

King fired a score of 525 out of 600 and is now waiting to see if he receives an invitation to the National Championship.

The National Junior Olympic program provides shotting competitions year-round. The program runs matches throughout the country, making it accessible for all interested juniors.

Junior shooters are able to participate in State Competitions sanctioned by USA Shooting, allowing them the chance to receive an invitation to shoot at the National Junior Olympic Championships hosted by USA Shooting in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The program serves as an important element of the pipeline development system in promoting the shooting sports.

Junior Olympic goals are to allow the skilled junior athletes to obtain national competitive experience for future development.

The program also serves as an opportunity to appoint the top finishers to the National Junior Team.
