Becky, Sean and Andrew Yackley of Team Winchester competed at the International Practical Shooting Confederation Vortex Cup Rifle National Championship held at the Wiechlice Airbase Training Center in Wiechlice, Poland, on June 15-16.

A 16-stage competition, the 2024 Vortex Cup Polish IPSC Rifle National Championship’s main match featured a minimum of 280 shots. The stages were split in half between the airfield ranges (one through eight) and forest ranges (nine through 16). Targets were a mix of IPSC cardboard targets, poppers, mini-poppers and steel gongs.

Becky Yackley was the runner-up in the Lady’s division, leaving the competition with a final score of 871.4224. Her score was about four points behind the division winner, Polish shooter Jenny Koskimäki.

Sean Yackley placed ninth in the semi-automatic standard division. He walked away from the match with a final score of 920.5974. Participants in this division are limited to only iron sights and must accurately engage targets out to 300 meters. The IPSC competition format requires participants to be highly accurate to earn the maximum number of points, making his performance all the more impressive.

As for Andrew Yackley, he finished in 40th place in the semi-automatic open division with a score of 862.0513, competing in a packed field boasting 203 of the best competitive rifle shooters in the world.
