SAN ANTONIO, TX -- Cadets from Claudia Taylor 'Lady Bird' Johnson High School will compete at the Civilian Marksmanship Sporter Air Rifle National Championships at Camp Perry this Friday and Saturday. Cadets Ian Zinsmeister, Paul Mankewitz, Jacob Saldana, and Samantha Lippolis posed for a photo with The Soldier of Marathon Trophy From the CMP's Collection of National Trophies. The Soldier of Marathon trophy shares with the Wimbledon Cup the distinction of being the oldest trophy in continuous competition. It was presented to the NRA in 1875 by Gen. George W. Wingate.
