Raider Rifle Team Returns To  Action At Bloomington

The IWCC Raider Rifle Team fired its third match of the season on Feb. 6 after a long break under the tier 4 mitigations. Living the “team life” to the fullest the coaches decided to enter 16 student athletes in the Winter Warm Up and the Raiders occupied the entire 16 point range at Central Illinois Precision Shooting west of Bloomington. 

IWCC fielded five precision shooters. Adriana Schroeder was top team member placing third overall with a score of 575-32 out of a possible 600-60. Jeffery Benz was eighth overall with a 537-18.

Katherine Winkel, Kortnie Beherns and Jacob Kuipers fired scores of 532-16, 529-14 and 529-9 respectively. The IWCC precision team fired a combined 2173 out of a possible 2400 point match.

Adriana fired one “possible” target, 100 out of 100, in the prone position. The term possible is short for firing the highest possible or perfect score.  

Tony Espinosa was the top sporter shooter with a 486-3 followed by Clarke Busick with a 469-4. 

Kiana Harding was third in the sporter division with a score of 451-4. IWCC brought enough shooters to effectively field three teams. The entry of three teams triggered the minimum entry requirement to have a team award at the CIPS Winter Warm Up and the ended up being an all-IWCC contest.
