Big things are happening for RHS Riflery!

“The Ridgeland Riflery team is proud to announce that it is the recipient of MidwayUSA Foundation’s $75,000 grant for range improvement,” said Athletic Director, Rob Stinson.  The mission of MidwayUSA is to help communities and organizations raise funds to support their high school, college, and other youth shooting teams and activities.  “Through its vision and dedication, the MidwayUSA Foundation has been influential in the development of young leaders nationwide through involvement in the time-honored tradition of shooting sports.  Ridgeland High School’s riflery team has, in its few short years, already become a significant presence in north Georgia through GHSA competition.  Now, through the generosity of MidwayUSA, Ridgeland will become of the home of a truly world-class riflery facility that will produce leaders and competitors of national significance!” 

 

The priorities to be selected for this grant went to projects that would have the most impact on youth shooting and also have local community financial support. “Our range being under construction at this time was a perfect example to show community support,” said Ridgeland’s Coach, Carl Gentry. “And with the size of the range, not only will our team sizes increase tremendously, we are also hoping to use it to have teams in both of our middle schools, as well as reaching out to others in our communities to offer firearm safety and training opportunities.”

One thing the grant will be used for is to obtain an electronic scoring system as used in top programs throughout the world. Athletes and spectators will be able to watch the athletes as they take each shot during their competitions.

“Our new range will be one of the nicest, if not THE nicest, not only in Georgia, but throughout the US! Great things will continue to happen thanks to the generosity and support of the MidwayUSA Foundation, our Superintendent, administrators, teachers, students, and community members! Thank you for helping Ridgeland’s Riflery team reach this level in such a short amount of time,” said Gentry.
