By far, her best stage at NRA Intercollegiate Pistol this year was open air pistol with a score of 560. The individual aggregate includes free, standard and open air pistol events.

A senior, Oh is now a back-to-back NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Champion. She improved her final score by four points over last year. This wasn't it for Oh, however, she also garnered first place honors in the women's individual, women's air pistol and standard pistol aggregates.

Joining Oh on the 2019 individual aggregate podium were her Coast Guard Academy teammates Brian Kim and Benjamin Waalkes. Kim, this year's runner-up, was four points behind Oh. Waalkes finished with a score of 1618.

Anchored by strong shooting from Oh, the Coast Guard Academy pistol team also picked up their first overall team win at this championship with a score of 6443. In second place was last year's champion the Ohio State University with a score of 6358. Finishing third was the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with 6238.

Much like the individual one, the team aggregate is comprised of free, standard and open air pistol events.

The match was held March 16-19 in Georgia at Ft. Benning, home of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, who have helped the NRA run this popular collegiate championship for many years.

A full match report will be published in a future issue of the digital magazine.
