After a delay due to Covid-19, ELEY, producer of the world’s most accurate rimfire ammunition, has released its high school All-American team for the 2019-2020 season, and it includes six members of the U.S. Shooting Team and five athletes now embarking on their freshman season of NCAA competition.
“While the Covid shutdown certainly added some challenges to this season, the scores produced and quality of nominees for this year’s All-American Team was the highest we’ve seen,” said Michele Makucevich, ELEY competition development manager.
Now in its fifth year, the ELEY High School All-American Program recognizes the nation’s top 10 high school competition rifle shooters in the smallbore rifle and air rifle disciplines. Appointed athletes receive an ELEY high school All-American coin and certificate. The top calculated average in each discipline is awarded 2,500 rounds of selected ELEY tenex and the opportunity to either visit the ELEY facility in Winters, Texas, to test the ammunition or ship their gun to the facility.
