It's day nine at the 2014 International Shooting Sport Federation World Championships. Though today's schedule includes rifle, shotgun and air gun rounds, it's yesterday's Junior Women's 50m Prone match that caught our attention.
... Katie Bridges (Kingsland, Texas) came through with a bronze medal as well in the Junior Women's 50m Prone match highlighting a strong performance with two of the three American women besting their previous high marks. Lorelie Stanfield (Fairbanks, Alaska) finished .9 behind Bridges in fourth while also shooting the best score she'd ever shot. Bridges, Stanfield and the 45th-place finish from Lauren Phillips (Seabeck, Washington) earned the team fourth place overall.
Katie Bridges, a member of the TCU Rifle Team, has been a regular at the NRA's National Smallbore Rifle Championships for a number of years. And when we see our friends flourish (along with the above mentioned Lauren Phillips) on the international level, we like to give them a tip of the proverbial cap.
