With a final score of 4676-273X, Richard Clark of Jackson, Michigan, is the 2022 NRA National Smallbore 3-Position National Champion. Clark secured his title at the NRA Smallbore 3-Position Nationals, one of the multiple championships comprising the 2022 NRA National Matches at Camp Atterbury, an Indiana National Guard facility about 37 miles south of Indianapolis.

For his victory, Clark received a championship medal and $200 check. The 2022 NRA National Smallbore 3-Position runner-up was Griffin Lake of Emmaus, Pennsylvania, with a score of 4675-235X. In third place was Peter Fiori of Lebanon, New Jersey, scoring 4646-223X.

The NRA National Smallbore 3-Position Championship is determined from an aggregate of the Conventional 3-Position and Metric 3-Position Championships. Clark's winning score for the Conventional Championship was 2392-191X, and for the latter he was the runner-up with a score of 2284-82X.

Earlier this year, Clark, as a member of the University of Kentucky rifle team, helped the Wildcats secure a second consecutive NCAA rifle championship. NRA National Matches fans will also remember last summer when Clark posted a new National Record during the Smallbore 3-Position Nationals at Camp Atterbury.
