It has been two years since Ripley High School Army JROTC won the Daisy Invitational National Air Gun Championship, held 5-7 July 2009 at Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, Kentucky.  This was the first national title for the Ripley team. 

 Members of the team were Cadets Austin Crutchfield, Chelsea Rhoads, Caitlin Townshend, and Ashley Prescott.   Alternate was Cory Sparks and coach was Major Hugh T. Cook.

 Ripley shot a 4134 beating second place Homestead 4-H Shooting Club from Nebraska.  This is only the 2nd time in 14 years that Homestead has been defeated at this match. 

 The Ripley team could not have attended this competition without the contributions from local sponsors.  These sponsors include The Bank of Ripley, Bancorp South of Henning, Ms. Pam Rhoads, and other anonymous donors.

 One of the great things about Ripley, TN is that they have a sign at the city limits which proclaims the achievements of the Ripley High School JROTC Rifle Team.  The sign on the right memorializes their 2005 State Championship.
