The top high school marksmen from across the state will compete in the 14th Annual Civilian Marksmanship Program/HHSAA Championships, Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Kamehameha-Hawaii campus in Kea‘au, Big Island. This year’s field includes defending girls champion Kellie Iwasaki (Waiakea).

While there is some variation among the leagues on team size and selection process to the state championships, all utilize the sporter air rifle in 3-position competition. Precision air rifles are not allowed. League competition, with the exception of Maui, is primarily team-based with an individual championship ending the season.

The HHSAA championship is one of two in the United States that are sanctioned by the high school athletic governing body. Georgia is the only other state with a sanctioned championship.

Shooters fire 20 recorded shots in each position – prone, standing and kneeling. A perfect score is 600. Teams are made up of four firing members from the same school.
