Port Clinton, Ohio -
During the sign-in session yesterday for the Smallbore 3-Position stage of the NRA National Rifle & Pistol Championships, we ran into Katie Bridges. This Texas teenager came up to Camp Perry with a boat load of ambition ... part of which included the hope of making the Texas State Rifle Association's shooting team. That would be quite the accomplishment, but it wouldn't be her first.
Another of her accomplishments was achieved earlier this year when she became the Women On Target's 3-Position Postal Match Champion.
"She is amazing," said Women on Target Coordinator Beth Hellman. "We are glad to hear that she is there in Ohio for the Camp Perry matches and support her efforts in this week's competition. Good luck Katie!"
We'll be sure to pass along the well wishes. And we'll also make sure to keep you, and Beth, updated on Katie's progress throughout the following days.
