On February 9, 2023, the air rifle team from Benedictine Military School (4-1) broke a 14-year losing streak to St. Vincent's Academy by defeating the Saints, 1105-1079, at the BC Rifle Range. Both teams particpate in the Georgia High School Association Air Riflery Area 3 division. This is the only sport the sister schools compete against each other.
James Thompson, the senior team captain, led the Cadets, who improved to 4-1, scoring 283 out of 300 to lead all shooters. Other BC shooters who qualified included sophomore Fischer Landon (277), junior Aidan Rachael (274), and freshman Cooper Winters (271), who also scored a personal-best score.
Today, Tuesday, February 14, 2023, the Cadets visit Windsor Forest High School, where they will look to extend their winning streak.
