1984 River Falls Journal file photo.

In 1974 young rifle team members won awards at championship matches held at the University of Minnesota armory. Members pictured are, front row, left to right, Joe Killian, Ricky Larson, Jeff Linehan, Dan Morrow, Tanya Finstad, Karen Meyer, Kerrin Kelly and Krisann Tousley; second row, Craig Johnson, Craig Finstad, Bruce Remus, Greg Smith, Greg Brown, instructor Ovin Finstad, Todd Keith, Tim Meyer, and Kevin Kelly.

Greg Smith took first in the 14-15 age group; Greg Brown took 6th in standing; Todd Keith 8th in the 3-position, and all three came home with medals. With 97 individuals competing only two achieved a score of 100 or more  — Jeff Linehan in prone position competition, and Todd Keith in sitting.

In team match, the squad of Greg Smith, Greg Brown, Craig Finstad and Todd Keith took 4th. (1974 River Falls Journal file photo)

Editor's Note: Thanks to Greg Brown for pointing out the rifle team won awards in 1974 not 1984. Apologies to all.
