USNA | About Us

The United States Naval Academy High Power Rifle Team is a group of dedicated midshipmen who represent the Naval Academy’s marksmanship program. The High Power Rifle ECA was founded in 1986 under the direction of MIDN Gasperino, now CDR Gasperino of the Naval Intelligence Office. The team competes in the fall and spring semesters and attends matches as often as possible in preparation for the Atlantic Fleet matches in April. Practice goes Tuesdays and Thursdays directly following classes and on select Saturday mornings. In 2008 the team out-shot every other large command team in the Atlantic Fleet to win the Rifle and Pistol Tournaments.
