2014 FEBRUARY
SMALLBORE SHOOTER OF THE MONTH
2014 FEBRUARY
AIR RIFLE SHOOTER OF THE MONTH

The MAC Smallbore Shooter of the Month is Bradley Boomhower of SUNY Maritime College.

Brad is a freshman from Greenville NY near Albany and is studying for a Mechanical Engineering degree as well as taking the additional classes required for the US Coast Guard License.  In his first semester Brad earned an impressive 3.43 GPA.

Brad came to Maritime with no formal shooting experience and started the year learning how to shoot air rifle.  At his first match of the semester he impressed everyone with a 541 at John Jay and finished the semester with a 530 air rifle average.   Brad was a natural when he took to 3-Position smallbore training and in his first few matches of the new semester was averaging right around 500.   When February rolled around Brad boosted his smallbore average more than 30 points.  He finished the year shooting 3 matches totaling a 513 at ARMY, then a 540 at MIT.  Brad finished the year at the MAC championships with a team high 544 helping Maritime win the Sharpshooter Championship in smallbore, all the while being a lefty.  We look forward to seeing even more improvement from Brad next year.

The MAC Air Rifle Shooter of the Month is Ronald Kopec of John Jay College

Ronald, a first year shooter on the rifle team from Northvale, NJ is a freshman at John Jay College. Throughout the season Ronald has had some stellar performances including a personal best 575.   He was the leading scorer for John Jay when the team recently won the 2014 MAC Air Rifle Expert Class Championship. Despite some hurdles during the season, Ronald finished the season with a 558.50 average.

During the month of February Ronald posted a 566 at the NRA Sectional, a 561 at the NCAA Qualifier and a 566 at the MAC Championships. Ronald has a refreshing and somewhat humorous personality that makes him well accepted by his teammates.  Yet, on the firing line he is all business and regardless of external life distractions always gives 100%.

On the academic side Ronald carries a full course load and earned a 3.26 GPA his first semester as a freshman.  When not at the College attending classes or practicing his shooting, Ronald works part time to support his shooting.
