This year we hosted the SASP WI State Championships at Oconomowoc Sportman’s Club (OSC). The team spent a long time over the last two days prior to the tournament helping set up the grounds. Yet they retained enough spunk to obtain some outstanding results at the championships: three national US records, three team golds, four individual golds, and numerous other top-three results.
- our squad #1 team set a team record for 9mm centerfire pistol (any category) with a team time of 164.31 seconds, beating their own previous record established in April at Midwest Regionals
- our squad #1 set a team record for rifle optics (any category) with a team time of 155.42 seconds
- Andy Lamm set the individual US record at 9mm centerfire pistol (any category) with an incredible 31.81 seconds – hard to believe!
- Our squad #1 (Andy Lamm, Dylan Richman, Cameron Thouati de Tazoult, Teagan Richman) won gold at 9mm centerfire pistol (senior varsity) and rifle optics (varsity)
- Our squad #2 (Alex Matson, Tommy Ostermann, Kyle Morrison, Patrick McGuire) won bronze at 9mm centerfire pistol (senior varsity) and gold at rifle irons (varsity)
- Andy Lamm won individual gold at 9mm centerfire pistol (senior varsity men) and rifle optics (varsity men)
- Teagan Richman won individual gold at 9mm centerfire pistol (senior varsity women) and rifle optics (varsity women)
- Alex Matson won individual gold at rifle irons (varsity men)
- Dylan Richman won individual silver at both 9mm centerfire pistol (senior varsity men) and rifle optics (varsity men)
- Cameron Thouati de Tazoult won individual bronze at both 9mm centerfire pistol (senior varsity men) and rifle optics (varsity men)
US Nationals are next month in Marengo, IL, between July 9 and July 16. We are hoping to improve our times further between now and then, and to do well at Marengo.
We can’t thank OSC enough for helping and supporting the team as they do, and for allowing us to host the championship at their location. Hosting the championship was a lot of hard work. All the team coaches, members and parents put a lot of work in. A few people were particularly instrumental in making it possible:
- Dave Richman spent several days bulldozing the pistol bays to improve their fit to the stages, and specified all the courses. He also designed the stage stands.
- Mr. Morrison welded all the stands that we used for the championship.
- Steve McGuire led a lot of the setup work for the pistol bays.
