Teen sets rifle record

Smith’s goal is to earn a college scholarship

A 13-year-old Rim Country Middle School eighth-grader has set an Arizona Junior High Power Championship rifle shooting score racking up 478 points out of a possible 500. In setting the mark, April 21 during the Matt Acker Memorial Shoot at Ben Avery Range near Phoenix, Donnie Smith also scored eight perfect bull’s-eyes. The match is held annually as a tribute to Acker — a former junior shooter who died in a 2001 automobile accident near a Florida military base where he was stationed.
