Today marks the conclusion of the first events at the USA Rifle and Pistol Nationals here in Georgia. The women finished up in air rifle, men finished up with 3-position rifle, and pistol finished up on center shot.
On the second day of air rifle competition, I struggled with my sighters, but had a strong start to my match. I began with a 97 then a 98. The next 20 shots were a struggle with fatigue and loss of focus affecting my aim. My second to last ten shots were a 95, and I finished with a 94. This placed me 6th on the second relay with a 384 with 16 x’s. My aggregate between the two days was a 767, which placed me 33rd overall.
I will be making my way back to Michigan following the awards program today at 2 p.m. To see the rest of the results for all the events at the USA Rifle and Pistol Nationals please check out http://www.usashooting.com/results.php.
