Miculek Retains 3-Gun Nation Top Lady Spot
Harris Overtakes Reese for Second Place
By Chad Adams
USA –-(Ammoland.com)- After eight of 10 events on the 2011 FNH USA 3-Gun Nation Tour, Presented by SureFire, Kay Miculek remains in the driver’s seat of the 3GN Ladies Standings, making her a lock for the 3GN Lady Shoot-Off in November and a shot at $5,000 from Cheaper Than Dirt!
Miculek’s score of 73.44 at the Adams Arms Ozark 3-Gun Championship raised her total 3GN points to 229.66, good enough for first in the Ladies, and 51st overall in the 3GN Standings.
Katie Harris recorded her best finish of the season, earning 68.2 points in Tactical Optics (or 68% of Daniel Horner’s division-winning time). The performance was good enough to bump Harris up the Lady Standings, as the junior shooter overtook SureFire’s Maggie Reese to claim the number two position. Reese, who injured her knee at Ozark, most likely has enough points secured to hang on to third, despite the injury.
Fourth place, and the final slot for the 3GN Lady Shoot-Off, is currently occupied by FN’s Dianna Liedorff (177.04). But a little more than a point away is teammate Tasha Hanish (175.86), and about 10 points back is Deb Cheek (167.11). Also notable is Annette Williamson’s two-match point total of 115.86. If she can match up one more to her pair, she figures to be in the mix in what will surely be a fight to the finish at November’s FNH USA Championships, where the final points will be tallied.
Then during the 3GN Championship, the top four Ladies will step to the Shoot-Off stage for the first all-lady Shoot-Off in 3-gun history, where one winner will take home the title, along with $5K.
