Shooting Competition

The accuracy match will be shot on metal biathlon targets for time. Each competitor will shoot five shots prone and five shots standing (using two targets). For each miss a ten second penalty will be added. The sixteen competitors with the fastest times in qualification will advance to the elimination round. In the elimination rounds, competitors will shoot in the same format, but will now be competing head to head. In the first round the top seed (fastest qualifying time) will be matched with #16, #2 with #15, etc. In the elimination rounds the competitors will be shooting head to head at the same time, the higher ranked competitor will get the choice of targets.

Relay Race

State teams will compete in a 3 x 3 km relay race. Each state may enter as many teams as it has members to fill. Any extra athletes will be combined to form mixed state teams (these teams will not be scored for determining the Eastern Biathlon Champion).
