Team Federal Premium shooters entered the 2012 event with title defense on their minds. In last year’s event, team members swept the High All Around (HAA) Championship. Leo Harrison took home first, Ray Stafford finished second and Rick Marshall Jr. rounded out the top three. So far this year, Harrison was the only shooter to post a 100 straight on Tuesday as he won the Handicap Event from the 27 yard line. Also in San Antonio, Ben Larson and Bob Munson (Team Federal) posted Wednesday’s only 100 straight scores on their way to winning the Event 15 Doubles event.
Team Federal Premium started this year’s Southwestern Grand American where they left off in 2012. Leo Harrison kicked off the winning in Tuesday’s Handicap Event by posting the only 100. At the 2011 Southwestern Grand, team members Harrison (first), Ray Stafford (second) and Rick Marshall Jr. (third) swept the High All Around (HAA) Championship.
In this year’s event, Wednesday turned out to be another good day for Team Federal member Bob Munson. The veteran class shooter posted one of only two 100s on the day to claim the Event 15 Doubles Event title. Junior Class shooter Ben Larson also shot a perfect on Wednesday.
