NEWINGTON, N.H. (May 28, 2015) — SIG SAUER, Inc., congratulates Tracie Rushing of Team SIG on her High Lady title in the Metallic Division at the recent National Rifle Association National Championships, better know as the Bianchi Cup.
Using a SIG SAUER® X-Six™ Scandic, Rushing took the High Lady title with a comfortable 70-point margin over the runner-up. Her 1599 score, with 68 “X’s,” was also good for an overall second place in the Marksman Metallic class.
“It was an honor to compete at the Bianchi Cup, one of the most prestigious pistol matches in the world, with my teammates,” Rushing said. “Competing with so many top performing shooters certainly creates intense match pressure, and I tried to maintain my focus on process rather than outcome throughout the match.”
As a member of Team SIG, Rushing is part of the team’s strong NRA Action Pistol component, which includes former Bianchi Cup champion Bruce Gray, who finished sixth in Production Division in his first year back after an absence from the match.
“I am very proud to have won the Women’s Metallic Championship, but am already revising my training for next year with the help of Team Manager Bruce Gray, with the hopes of an even stronger performance in 2016,” she said.
