Katie BridgesIt'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.

Here's a snippet from a press release with an update from the ISSF championships from USA Shooting:

... 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.
