STUTTGART, GERMANY -- Stuttgart’s High School Rifle team was one of the fortunate few winter squads that was allowed to practice with the hopes of competing for the European and Army Postal Matches during the 2020-21 season. Just prior to December 11, 2020, the rifle team had been practicing to hone in on their individual shooting skills to try to repeat last year’s 2019-2020 All Army JROTC Rifle Team Title. However, because of COVID-19’s rapid spread, this led to the cancellation of schools, sports included, and sent everyone into remote learning due to tighter COVID-19 restrictions imposed in Germany and throughout the Stuttgart Community. And though COVID-19’s stubbornness has led to many unforeseen circumstances Stuttgart’s Rifle team continues to hope for the best, with the possibility of competing and remaining the All-Army Champions in 2020-2021.

Keep up the great work and perseverance, Stuttgart HS JROTC! MEGA HOOAH!!!
