South Surrey cadets from the 907 Black Knights Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron struck gold at provincial marksmanship championships in Vernon last weekend.
Now, they’re waiting to see if their scores will nab them a national title.
The six-cadet team claimed provincial gold Saturday, and Sunday competed for a national championship. However, they’ll need to wait for results to be posted from other regions in Canada to find out if they finished first.
One cadet, flight sergeant Liam Montgomery – who has been shooting for four years – scored a perfect 100 in Sunday’s final round – three points above his already-high average of 97.
For Black Knights’ longtime coach Vernon Brown, Saturday’s provincial title marks the 14th time one of his teams have reached a provincial final, and the seventh time they’ve competed for a national crown.
The Surrey-based cadets won a national title in St. John’s, Nfld. in 2004.
