Team Blackhawk tactical athlete Ehea Schuerch last month landed a first-place finish in the Women’s Elite division of the Tactical Games 2023 Mississippi Regional event.
The Mississippi Tactical Games Regional event took place February 18-19 in Meridian, Mississippi.
The win in Mississippi marks Schuerch’s first as a member of Team Blackhawk. Throughout the competition she ran her Blackhawk T-Series holster and Foundation Series plate carrier.
“I’m ecstatic to start this season with a win,” Schuerch said. “The location in Meridian was awesome and I’m glad that I made the trek all the way from eastern Washington. I prepped for the match with my trusted T-Series holster and the Blackhawk Foundation Series. The simplistic and minimalist design of the Foundation Series plater carrier is perfect for what I do in the Tactical Games. It’s important that the carrier be as light as possible, which makes me faster, and there’s no extra material for it to snag on an obstacle while competing.”
A Spokane, Washington, native, Schuerch began competing at Tactical Games events last year, quickly becoming one of the games’ fiercest competitors. Additionally, in 2022 at the Tactical Games National Championship in Florence, Texas, Schuerch was the runner-up in a talented group of 15 elite female competitors.
Outside of competition, Schuerch has served as a corrections officer at the Spokane County Jail for seven years, where she is also the only female to join the jail’s Correctional Response Team. In addition, she has served as a defensive tactics instructor for nearly six years and recently became EMT certified.
Schuerch’s next competition will be at the Texas Shooting Academy in Florence, Texas, on March 18-19.
