Hargrave Marksmanship Team Earns National Rifle Association (NRA) Firearm Skill Ratings


This season the Hargrave shooters have focused on mastering the fundamentals of marksmanship and were introduced to quick fire techniques (engaging steel targets), and just recently were familiarized with the fundamentals of shooting targets while moving. To test each shooter’s mastery of the fundamentals of marksmanship they completed multiple levels of the NRA’s rimfire rifle qualification program. This program is designed to take shooters from beginning skill levels (Pro-Marksman and Marksman) through intermediate levels (Sharpshooter, and Expert) up to the nationally recognized skill level and pinnacle of the program, Distinguished Expert. A Distinguished Expert rating parallels that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter. We are proud to report our shooters worked hard and achieved the following skill ratings:

Expert Skill Rating: 

Joseph Assen

Jacob Miller

Peyton Smith

Aiden White

Bohong Yang


Sharpshooter Skill Rating: 

John Classen

Jaiden Condry

Aiden Dykstra

Andrew Francis

CJ Griffith

Eryk King

Chance Whitenack


As a reminder, to raise money we have established a team endowment with MidwayUSA who matches any donation provided by supporters or our program. We are allowed to draw 5% of the endowment twice per year to help fund operational costs for the team.  

Please go to

and click on “Find a Team,” and type in Hargrave Military Academy to see what we have raised and to make a donation. Our goal is to raise a total of $15,000 before the beginning of the season in August.
