14-year-old Cooper Chamney wins the first national title of this year’s NHSFR taking the light rifle shooting competition

ROCK SPRINGS – At only the age of 14, Idaho’s Cooper Champney claimed the first national high school title at the 66th National High School Finals Rodeo. He scored 325 to win the light rifle shooting.

One would think winning on such a big stage would be a once in a lifetime experience for a fourteen year old , but not for Chamney. Last year, he won the Junior High Finals Rodeo in this event.

Cooper shot 114 in the prone position, 103 standing and 108 kneeling for a total of 325 points. Morgan Meyers of Texas, shot 116, 99 and 105, respectively, to finish second with a 320. Matt Keller of Wisconsin, David Gunkel of Washington and Devon Comstock of Oklahoma rounded out the top five.
