Fear the Beard
Fort Benning, GA -(AmmoLand.com)- Sarah Beard left her mark on the 2015 USA Shooting National Championships, something that’s more routine than not these days.
Tuesday’s title run in Women’s Three-Position Rifle cemented another great Nationals performance with Beard (Danville, Indiana) also claiming a national title in Air Rifle (Friday) while also finishing runner-up in Prone (Sunday). Three new medals added to a five-year medal haul in Fort Benning, Georgia, that now includes 15 since 2011, including seven national titles.
This year’s run included victories in all four finals she competed in, adding to her tremendous week.
“I’m very happy about how this week of Nationals went,” Beard said. “Of course, a third gold medal would have been even more awesome, but I’ve been training Air Rifle and 3P quite a bit, and it’s paid off. I’m also elated to have won all four finals, and I think it’s a great training match for Azerbaijan, as it pointed out a few things I need to work on before then. I’m super thankful for all the positive coaching and encouragement I’ve received the past few months, and it’s definitely showing.”
