Becky and Andrew Yackley secured the High Woman and High Junior titles at the 2021 Bianchi Cup National Action Pistol Championship, held in May at the Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club in Hallsville, Mo.

Regular SSUSA readers will remember the profile of the Yackley family published last year.

The two Team Winchester shooters earned top honors for their respective divisions for the first time. Becky won the High Woman title with a score of 1908-139X, while her youngest son, Andrew, clinched High Junior with 1882-134X.

The Yackley family is no stranger to the Bianchi Cup. Andrew's two brothers, Tim and Sean, have both won the Bianchi Cup Junior title in previous years. Andrew's 2021 victory marks the sixth straight Junior National Championship for a Yackley brother.

While Becky is a competitive shooting veteran and has competed at past Bianchi Cups as a Metallic shooter, this year marked the first time for her competing in Open. Her 1908-139X score placed her 13th overall in the combined results. This accomplishment is particularly impressive given the added challenge of doing so in her first year with unfamiliar equipment.

“In previous years, I’ve wondered how I would perform in the Open division at Bianchi. With some prompting from my eldest son, Tim, I decided to make the switch and use his gun this year,” said Becky. “I’m honored to [win] the Women’s Championship and thankful for my friends and family who cheered me on and encouraged me to take a chance.”

As members of Team Winchester, the Yackley family—Becky, Mark, Tim, Sean and Andrew—has made a name for themselves through success in competition and sharing their expertise through educational content.
