It looked like an Ohio State University (OSU) reunion at Blue Trail Range on Sunday, May 22, with all of the OSU logos on shooting apparel. Bailey Urbach, just completing her freshman year, fired the high score of 1587-102x for the day. Teammate Patrick Sardo (OSU sophomore) fired a 1572-65x for 1st Expert. Junior Anthony Cuozzo watched from the sidelines, as his sister, Sophia, captured High Junior with a 1572-78x. Both Bailey and Patrick were competing in one last match before heading up to Cape Cod to teach riflery in the capacity as camp counselors at the Cape Cod Sea Camp. They both had to go through quite a comprehensive camp application process and we are proud of them for being such great ambassadors to the shooting sports and having the opportunity to share their experiences with so many young people this summer.
Firing the 2nd overall score for the day was fired by New Hampshire’s Vartan Frank Garbouchian. Only one point behind Bailey’s score, his 1586 garnered him 1st Sharpshooter. Connecticut finally made the top three, as Kaitlyn Kutz, from Cos Cob Revolver & Rifle Club, Inc. posted a 1585-90x for High Woman. Firing a 1584-100x was Craig Samuelson for 1st Master. Blue Trail Range JRC’s Emma Acampora and Tucker Fowler were named Hi Sub-Junior and 1st Marksman, respectively with scores of 1574-82x and 1571-75x. Cos Cob’s Kyle Kutz fired a 1561-67x for 2nd Marksman.
The match was a great mixture of fellowship. College kids home competing, seeing our New Hampshire friends (thanks Bob for bringing Vartan to Connecticut!), and a lot of parents waiting and watching their young athletes—not caring for once as it was really one of the first warm days New England had seen all summer. See everyone next week for the Prone Regional (June 4 & 5). Remember, the more competitors, the more NRA National entry fee waivers we can distribute; and, it is a qualifing match for Connecticut shooters trying to earn a spot on one of the state teams for the outdoor smallbore rifle nationals at Bristol in July!
P.S. Thanks to the parents who brought the young shooters to the range and Mr. Wesson for assisting in the Stat Office.
