 The I.W.C.C. Co-op Rifle Club finished its season at the Spring Fling hosted by the Illinois State Rifle Association (I.S.R.A.) at their range near Bonfield. Eight I.W.C.C. shooters were able to compete in a rigorous 120 shot match fired in two phases. The first phase of the event was the traditional three-position match. Twenty (20) shots in kneeling, prone and standing. The second phase of the match was sixty (60) shots standing. The all-standing match is also known as an International Match due to its popularity around the world and as part of the Olympics. The I.S.R.A. Spring Fling was a C.M.P. or Civilian Marksmanship Program sanctioned event for sporter and precision shooters.

Eight shooters traveled to the I.S.R.A. Range on Sunday, April 11. For Seniors, Jacob Kuipers and Adriana Schroeder, this was their final match as Raiders. Seasoned shooters, Kourtney Beherns, Tanner Tholen and Clark Busick, stuck to their guns throughout the season along with first year shooters Lily Anderson, Tyler Balthazor and Wyatt Herscher.
