Nation Ford’s Cameron Earns Overall Wins, National Records at 2022 National Sporter Air Rifle Championship

CAMP PERRY, Ohio – Nation Ford High School’s Marine Corps JROTC, coming off a Three-Position National Championship title its members achieved in March, saw Maya Cameron, 18, leading all matches at the 2022 National Three-Position Sporter Air Rifle Championship.

The National Championship for the sporter class was held June 23-25, 2022, at the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center in Ohio. A group of 122 junior athletes from 4-H, Scouts, American Legion, club and JROTC air rifle programs fired in the event, which facilitated two different matches: the Junior Olympic Three-Position Nationals and the CMP Nationals.

The National Three-Position Championship features junior scholastic and club athletes from around the country.

During her winning performances, Cameron set a new overall and MCJROTC national record in the Junior Olympic competition with a finals score of 443.9 and two new national overall and MCJROTC records for her outstanding finals score of 448.8 in the CMP match.

Nation Ford was also the leading sporter team each day of the National Three-Position Air Rifle Championship while fielding a third and second place team and five top three individual finishes. Unsurprisingly, Nation Ford was the high scholastic team in both matches.

Cameron set multiple records during her finals performances at the event.

Other placing teammates were Kyle Orr, 18, who earned third and second place wins, respectively, as Samantha Zermeno, 17, added another third place finish in the CMP Nationals event. Nation Ford’s Abril DeCastro, 16, landed in eighth place in the Junior Olympic match.

Also earning a spot on the podium was Tha Dah, 17, of Des Moines Central MCJROTC from Iowa, who claimed second place in the Junior Olympic match.

Nation Ford MCJROTC brought home several awards from the match, including two first place trophies.

Along with medals, the leading eight individuals of the CMP Three-Position Match received monetary awards from the CMP: $1,000 for first through third and $500 for fourth through eighth. Teams received their own funds from the CMP: $2,000 for third, $3,000 for second and $4,000 for first.

The CMP also presented $1,000 scholarships to the top three placing graduated seniors of the event. This year’s recipients were Maya Cameron, Kyle Orr and Tha Dah.
