Smith & Wesson’s Randi Rogers Wins High Lady at S&W IDPA Back Up Gun Nationals
Randi Rogers, wearing her new Smith & Wesson shooting team jersey, and armed with her new M&P Compact 9mm, continued her amazing win streak in IDPA competition with her High Lady title win at the inaugural Smith & Wesson IDPA Back Up Gun Nationals.
Randi Rogers spent the match shooting side-by-side with friend and Smith & Wesson teammate Julie Golob who returned to competition after the birth of her second daughter earlier this year. The two swapped stage wins back and forth on the first four stages until Rogers settled in, claiming eight more stage wins – two of them overall stage wins in the division.
Rogers finished the match and took the High Lady title with a final time of 212.20 seconds, shooting 98 points down, which placed her sixth Master and seventh overall in the Pistol division, and 11th among all competitors in the championship.
“Randi is hands down IDPA’s top woman shooter and consistently among the top shooters overall. She has not been defeated in IDPA competition in a number of years and her performance this weekend shows why,” said Joyce Wilson, executive director of IDPA.
Second place went to Golob who finished with a time of 261.56 seconds shooting 132 points down. Joyce Wilson took third among the women with 324.76 (103), followed by Judith Szczygiel in fourth with 326.56 (149). Rounding out the top five was Tammy Lyne who scored one stage win and finished with 353.93 (235).
All five women competed in the Pistol division.
