Three days down, one to go. Here are what the standings look like heading into the last day:
Sherri Gallagher continues to be a deadeye on the firing line and is posting a 1797-129x - three shy of a perfect score. She appears to be chasing her very first High Power Rifle Championship with great determination. Sherri's mother, Nancy H. Tompkins-Gallagher, is a previous champion who won the title in 1998.
Although Sherri's chances look very good, sitting in second is Carl Bernosky with a 1796-109x. Sherri may have a commanding lead on X-rings, but Carl, pictured at left, needs only to gain two points on her and he will have shot his way to a fifth championship. Of course, this task is easier said than done.
Tomorrow's forecast is clear and sunny. There is no threat of rain to postpone matches as competitors enter the final stretch. In less than 24 hours, we'll meet our 2010 champion.
On the Service Rifle front, Eric Swearingen is in the lead for the Service Rifle Championship with a 1789-86x, but 2009 Service Rifle Champion Grant Singley's 1785-97x and Troy Lawton's 1785-70x are looming.
