The South Panola High School Air Force Junior ROTC Marksmanship Team placed ninth in the All Service World Rifle Championship in Anniston, Alabama, recently.


The team consisted of Nick Rudd, Kayla Walker, Raven Hudson, Jason Robertson, Thomas Harkins and Shaniya Poole.


Rudd scored an Air Force best score 556 points, while Walker earned her National Distinguished Shooter Medal. Her medal is one of only 1,340 awarded since 2000.  


The ninth-place finish at the World Championship follows the team’s top spots at the Mississippi High School State Championship in January and the Air Force National Championship.
