Rachel Garner of Texas Christian University (TCU) won the Women's Three-Position Rifle competition at the National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships (NJOSC), held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center, in Colorado Springs, CO, earlier this month. Garner, a sophomore from Celina, TX, was the standout performer in a talented field. Firing back-to-back world-level qualifying scores of 587 and 585, her 1172 cumulative score earned her the victory.

On what it means to be a Junior Olympic Champion and now a Junior World Championship Team member, Rachel Garner (pictured) said, "It's a dream come true and just a tremendous honor."


After securing the win, Garner finished third in the Final. Garner's performance backs up an outstanding match she had during this year's NCAA Rifle Championship. She was the top qualifier in Smallbore and then finished fourth in the Final. She was the second-best qualifier in Air Rifle there too, and ended up third overall in that event. Garner was runner-up in the Smallbore (.22 caliber) event at last year's NJOSC.
