Exceptional shooting to clench top spot at NRA Whittington Center
Raton, New Mexico - Jack Odor had a narrow lead going into the last day of the Black Powder Target Rifle Prone Championship.
He started out good, but it wasn't good enough. Despite shooting a 99 at 200 yards, both Mike Rix and Mark Hipes fired 100s to close within one of him. But at 300 yards Odor was able to pad his lead, by four with Hipes and one on Rix.
Although shooters like Keith Lay and the Position Champion Chip Mate were matching or doing better than Odor's Day Two scores, they had more ground to cover and Odor needed only to stay the course in order to walk home with a trophy.
