This year at Camp Atterbury, Ind., during the NRA National Matches, three women captured the top titles at their respective championships. Starting in July with Amanda Elsenboss winning the NRA National High Power Rifle Championship, Kimberly Rowe went on to top the High Power Mid-Range Championship leaderboard, followed by Kristin Yeaton winning the Smallbore Rifle 3-Position Championship.

All three of these National Championships form part of the NRA National Matches, which are held at Camp Atterbury every summer. This year’s competitions will conclude on Tuesday, August 8, after the close of the NRA National Smallbore Prone Championships (and the awarding of the NRA Smallbore Lones Wigger Iron Man Trophy).
