GENESEO, IL, (AmmoLand) – Team Springfield Armory competitors young and ‘almost as young’ made a strong showing at the 2016 USPSA Single Stack Nationals Saturday, May 6, with Team Captain Rob Leatham finishing third overall and first in the senior division. Springfield Armory’s newest team members, Jalise and Justine Williams finished 9th and 10th overall in the women’s division and 4th and 5th in the Junior Division.
After the shooting had finished, Leatham observed, “It’s hard to believe I am categorized as a ‘senior’ now in USPSA. It still feels like yesterday that I shot that first Single Stack Classic in Milan, IL. It’s bittersweet to have lost the championship overall, but I’m stoked that I won the Senior title. I feel very fortunate and a little amazed that I can still compete with the new generation of shooting talent. There are some exceptional competitors out there, and it’s good to be in the running.”
