TRC Congratulates The New State Smallbore Champions


The 2008 Smallbore State Champions are:

Standard Rifle - Antonio Lopez 

Hunter Rifle - Joy Cox


Eighty eight shooters from Arizona, Texas, Colorado, and Mexico attended the 2008 Arizona State Silhouette Rifle and Hunter Rifle Championships held at TUCSON RIFLE CLUB on October 4th and 5th.  High winds of 25 mph rocked everyone for the duration causing blinding dry dust, low overall scores and testing everyone's mettle!


     Joy Cox of Phoenix, Arizona won the Hunter Rifle Championship easily with a score of 92 of possible 120.  She was also High Woman and High Arizona Resident!  Joy has proved a fierce competitor having won this event many times in years past.  She narrowly missed winning the Standard Rifle match by a mere 2 points!


     Antonio Lopez is no stranger to wind!  Making the long trek from El Paso, Texas to Tucson, Arizona, he bested all comers with a respectable score of 89 of 120 to win the Standard Rifle Championship.  Antonio was joined by many of his fellow competitors from El Paso who also competed and shot well!  Match highlights follow:
