The Eagle River High School riflery team recently received a grant for $3,586.62 from the Friends of the NRA Foundation. The grant money will be used for maintenance and repair of the team’s 0.177-caliber precision air rifles, targets, shooting backstop materials and replacement air cylinders.

The ERHS team consists of 18 athletes. High school riflery is a co-ed sport in which boys and girls compete alongside one another.

The Friends of the NRA is made up of local volunteers appointed to state fund committees to make recommendations for youth grant funding.
