GAINESVILLE - Former Gainesville High School student and NJROTC air rifle athlete Kathryn Youngblood not only made the Georgia Southern NCAA Division I Women's Air Rifle Team as an incoming freshman, but also got a one-year scholarship tied to being a member of the team. <br />
GHS assistant principal Adrian Cromwell commented, "This is an awesome accomplishment and a true testament to the hard work, dedication, and effort [Cdr. Corey Brown and MSgt. Jack Reese] put into our NJROTC Program! Collegiate accomplishments, like Youngblood's accomplishment, are a direct result of her hard work and the program's great training & leadership!"<br />
A total of 34 NCAA schools sponsor rifle, including a combination of coed, men's and women's teams, and 22 compete at the Division I level. Eight schools compete in Division I women's rifle and 13 compete in mixed rifle.<br />
Georgia Southern will compete in the Air Rifle discipline to start. Other Division I women's rifle programs in the Southeast include The Citadel, The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and Ole Miss.
