It's their third win in a row. Garfield AJROTC was led by Isabella Baughman. The remaining contributing members were Tymmithee Miller, Jonathan Stanevich and Sadie Feagain.

Overall, Garfield AJROTC finishes the regular season 23rd out of 76 teams.

These two teams are competing in the National Air Rifle "New Shooter" League. Sponsored by the Orion Scoring System, the league is a national team league exclusive to athletes in their first year of competition. Teams are from high schools and junior rifle clubs throughout the United States. Over 10 weeks, each team competes in eight games. Each week, each team is paired with another team with a near-equal skill level.

In each game, the teams compete in what is known as a Three-Position Air Rifle match. The match is modeled after Olympic Rifle competitions but adapted to high-school-age athletes. Each athlete will shoot 10 shots in three different shooting positions: prone, standing and kneeling. Each shot is worth a maximum of 10.9 points. The sum of points scored in the 30 shots is the athlete's total. The team score comprises the best four athletes from each team.
