Perfect shooting propels Hendricks from fifth to first at National Championship
Port Clinton, Ohio - Joe Hendricks greeted the dawn of NRA's 2014 High Power Rifle Championship sitting in fifth place. But by sundown, the Team Remington shooter was the national champion. What happened in between is a shining example of consistency and perseverance.
Four points behind the leader, Hendricks was tied for third with a low x-count that placed him at the end of the 1189 shooters' list. Four points down doesn't put the title out of reach, but making up those points in one afternoon is no cakewalk. After all, everyone has been zeroed in for days by this point. For a chance, you have to shoot a perfect score and hope everyone else falters. In this case, with Hendricks and his four primary rivals, that is exactly what played out.
