The Texas A&M Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Unit once again topped the leaderboard at the Scholastic Action Shooting Program’s College Nationals, securing the 2022 Centerfire Pistol Championship and the national title with a final time of 189.93 seconds. The match was held March 11-13 at the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Talladega, Alabama.

With this latest title, the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Unit has now won a mind-boggling seven SASP championships over the last nine years. The SASP College National Championship is awarded to the highest scoring team firing striker-fired, centerfire pistols. Every year since 2013 at the SASP College Nationals, the Texas A&M Corp of Cadets team has either secured the championship outright or finished as runner-up.

The members of the four-person Texas A&M Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Unit team winning this year’s SASP College Nationals are seniors Joshua Delgado and Holdon Perez, along with two sophomores, Rheily Garcia and H. “Gage” Lange.

Leading the way for Texas A&M was Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Unit Commanding Officer, Joshua Delgado, who garnered the high overall centerfire shooter honor at the match with a final time of 39.58. For centerfire, his best stage time was 1.41 seconds at the “Go Fast” stage. In addition, Delgado fired a 47.32-second time in the 1911 division.

With a final time of 42 seconds, Holdon Perez was the runner-up high overall centerfire shooter at the match.

Texas A&M Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Unit Head Coach Kevin Jimmerson noted in a statement to TheEagle.com that the team’s relative youth did not affect its shooters’ performances on the firing line. “The team is very young this year with only two senior cadets and five junior cadets to lead by example,” he said. “This match in this venue places a lot of stress on the competitors, and our underclassmen stayed focused and performed well.”

As for guns and ammunition, AmmoLand.com Editor Duncan Johnson reports the Texas A&M CCMU Centerfire Team was firing “three Glock G34s, a Walther PPQ and Orr Tactical ammunition” at this year’s SASP College Nationals.
