    In the Three-Position Any Sight Rifle Championships, the USAMU Soldiers seized the Gold and Silver. Desrosiers, a Swansea, Massachusetts native, took the top spot with a 1155-47x and Muske, a Brenham, Texas native, came in close behind with a 1151-49x.

    The Soldiers moved on to the Three-Position Rifle Finals and swept the podium again, but with a change in order this time. Muske came in first with a 453.9. Sunderman, a Farmington, Minnesota native, was close behind with a 452.3. Then, Desrosiers filled the podium with the U.S. Army logo by taking up third with a 436.4.
