Bernosky closes gap as Army’s Gallagher drops shot at Camp Perry.

Port Clinton, Ohio - Longtime competitor Konrad Powers tied the NRA National Championship Record and won the Coast Guard Trophy match this morning at Camp Perry. Powers fired a practically perfect 200-18x, rapid fire, from the sitting/kneeling position.

Finishing behind Powers, SSG Tyrel Cooper’s 200-16x was enough to earn second place as Leigh Jenks III came in third with a 200-15x. Carl Bernosky, who sat third overall this morning, tied for fourth place in the Coast Guard match with Jonathan O’Neal, SGT Nathan Verbickas and SFC Grant Singley, who all shot a 200-14x.

Bernosky’s score managed to gain some ground on SGT Sherri Gallagher, NRA’s 2010 High Power Rifle champion, who started the morning second overall. Gallagher dropped a point in the Coast Guard match after shooting a 199-12x.
