Bernosky holds lead over Gallagher as both tumble in bad weather

SGT Sherri Gallagher at the NRA High Power Rifle Championship's Crescent Cup

Port Clinton, Ohio - Poor weather conditions make today ripe for an unpredictable finish as was demonstrated in this morning's Crescent Cup. Bernosky, whose 200-15x tied the National Record last year, yielded to weather and dropped a few shots, managing a 197-10x - good enough for third.

But succumbing to the nasty weather herself, SGT Sherri Gallagher was not able to leap Bernosky and take the lead, dropping even more shots and finishing with a 195-2x. The Camp Perry legend is now two points and 13 X's ahead of Gallagher with only two matches remaining.

The match winner was Julia Watson, who fared the best in this inclement weather with a 199-7x. Leigh Jenks III placed second with a 198-6x. After Bernosky, Timothy Klauer came in fourth with a slightly lower X-count of 197-7x. Another Camp Perry legend, David Tubb, sat fifth with one X below him, posting a 197-6x.

Staff Sergeant Tyrel Cooper prepares for his string in the NRA High Power Rifle Championship's Crescent Cup

Staff Sergeant Tyrel Cooper held on to his lead for the Service Rifle Championship tying with Bob Gill for sixth with 196-5x's.

Bernosky opened a substantial lead for himself but the weather could still impact scores as shooters get further and further away from their targets in the last two matches.
