Eight Is Enough as Osborn Sets Records at
CMP Regional Championships

By Ashley Brugnone, CMP Writer/Editor


In only its second year, the CMP Championships have already seen a 61 percent increase in the Postal phase and a 75 percent increase at the Regional events, compared to its inaugural year.

LAYTON, UT; ANNISTON, AL; CAMP PERRY, OH – Setting even one National Record is an accomplishment that many shooters strive to achieve, but few are able to grasp. Though many are satisfied when they finally have their names added to the record books, for a certain young shooter at the second annual CMP Regional Championship, setting one record just wasn’t enough. Or two. Or three.


The second annual CMP Regional Championship was held at Camp Perry, OH, March 27-29 and in Anniston, AL, and Layton, UT, April 3-5. MidwayUSA is the sponsor of the CMP Championships and awarded $3,000 to all teams who reached the Regional event.

Sarah Osborn, 15, of Patriot 4-H Shooting Club, VA, set an astounding EIGHT National Records during her showing at the Camp Perry location, including 4-H, Junior Club and Age Group II records for her overall score of 597-47x. She also set four standing records and a 3x20 plus final record. Naturally, she earned the gold at Camp Perry and the overall competition.


Sarah Osborn of Patriot 4-H Shooting Club gave an astonishing performance at the CMP Regionals match as she broke EIGHT records and finished in first place overall in the precision competition.

Osborn is only one example of the 4-H, JROTC and Junior Club individuals and team members that attended the CMP Regional Championships for an exciting round of three-position air rifle competition. Northern shooters took the line at Camp Perry the weekend of March 27-29, as shooters from the south competed in Anniston the following week, April 3-5. That same weekend, western shooters fired upon the electronic targets of the mobile range with a picturesque view of snow-capped mountains just outside the venue doors in Layton, UT.


Jack Anderson of Oil City Jr. Rifle landed in the third place spot overall in the precision competition after being beat out in the x-count by the second place winner.

Continuing to grow, the CMP Championships showed a 61 percent increase in participation during the Postal phase of the event this year, with a total of 1,487 shooters. Athletes meeting on the firing line at the Regional competitions also saw a tremendous increase, with a 67 percent jump from the previous year.


William Dixon of Ontelaunee Jr. Rifle entertained the crowd of spectators and athletes during the Shooters Reception at the Camp Perry location with his outstanding fiddle performance.

MidwayUSA is the sponsor of the CMP Championships, as well as a leading contributor to the success of youth shooting sports in the country. Teams that reached the Regional Championship were awarded $3,000 towards their MidwayUSA endowments. Winning teams received additional funds.


James Frees of Trigger Time 4-H Shooting Club set a new 4-H Shooting Sports record with his finals score of 95.1. Fees also finished in second place at the Camp Perry location.

Along with Osborn, James Fees, 13, of Trigger Time 4-H Shooting Club, VA, also fired a new 4-H Shooting Sports record, with a finals score of 95.1. Fees used that finals score to claim the silver medal at the Camp Perry location.


Isaac Diaz of Northwestern High School NJROTC claimed the second place spot overall in the sporter competition. He was the first place competitor at the Camp Perry location and fell to the overall CMP Champion by only one point.

Setting a team record was the Black Swamp Junior Club, OH, which set a new Junior Club Team record with a combined score of 2344-162x.


The Black Swamp Jr. Rifle Club, OH, was the overall precision team champions. Team members are Sarah Sutton, Ian Foos, Justin Kleinhans and Sean Roehrs. The team is coached by Fred Sutton. In addition to their first place finish, the team also set a new Junior Club Team record with their combined score of 2344-162x.

In the individual sporter results, Adam McClintock, 17, of Flowing Wells High School, AZ, came out on top with an aggregate score of 1112-36x. Isaac Diaz, 17, of Northwestern High School NJROTC, MI, followed close behind with 1111-49x for second place, as Michael Murphy, 18, of R-S Central High School Team 1, NC, posted a score of 1107-47x for third.


Adam McClintock of Flowing Wells High School was the overall sporter champion after firing a combined score of 1112-36x.

In the individual precision results, Sarah Osborn dominated the field by firing a 1190-93x to land in first place overall. Sarah Sutton, 16, of Black Swamp Jr. Rifle, OH, and Jack Anderson, 17, of Oil City Jr. Rifle Team, PA, battled neck-and-neck for second place, with the victor winning out only in x-count. Sutton bested Anderson with her score of 1183-93x, as Anderson trailed with 1183-84x.


Sara Sutton of Black Swamp Jr. Rifle squeaked into second place overall in the precision competition with her score of 1183-93x. Sutton beat out the third place competitor only in x-count.

As proof of the growing talent of junior shooters up north, seven out of the Top 10 (and all of the Top 5) shooters in the precision class competed at the Camp Perry location, as did nearly half of the Top 10 in the sporter division. Additionally, three of the Top 5 teams in the precision class hailed from Camp Perry as well.


Each location held a relaxed Shooters Reception for parents, guests and athletes to enjoy after the competition. The Utah location, shown here, featured a taco bar and dessert buffet.

  1. Lebanon High School, OR – 4334-143x
