Glen Cove Rifle Crowned County Champions

Congratulations to our Varsity Rifle Team on winning the County Championship, after being crowned conference champions and an undefeated season. Great shooting all season by sophomore Matthew Pemberton (1st in the county) and sophomore Julie Micko (4th in the County). Matt Arena (All Conference), Selena Guastella (All Conference), Peter Budraitis (All Conference), and Ryan Carmody (1st year shooter). This season was highlighted by many accomplishments.

This season was highlighted by many accomplishments:

1. This was the first undefeated season for a Glen Cove Rifle team.

2. The team broke the Glen Cove school team record three different times this season. The 734 score that was shot at the County Championship is now the present Glen Cove school team record.

3. This is the first time that any member of the Glen Cove Team has ever been crowned as the Individual County Champion. (Matt Pemberton)

4. This is the first time that any member of the Glen Cove Team has ever been the Individual County Champion Runner-Up. (Peter Budraitis, who shot his person best and exceeded all expectations that were set for him yesterday by shooting a 188, which is 13 points higher than his season average).

5. Matt Pemberton broke the individual school record by shooting a score of 195 out of 200 at Freeport this year. That means that 15 of his 20 shots were bulls.

Congratulations to the Air Rifle team and coaching staff. You make Glen Cove Proud. Good Luck at the NYSPHSAA Tournament February 28th at West Point.
