TTAG Salutes: Horned Frog Champion Riflewoman Sarah Scherer

Sarah Scherer gets TTAG’s first shout-out for her outstanding performance for the Texas Christian University Rifle Team. gofrogs.cstv.com reports that Ms. Scherer “continued her dominance of the NCAA field as she once again established an NCAA record with an aggregate score of 1,195 (599 in air rifle and 596 smallbore). She narrowly missed a perfect score in air rifle, missing just one shot in her first round of 10. She closed out her session with five straight perfect strings of 100. In smallbore, she shot a perfect 200 in the prone position, a 198 standing and 198 kneeling.” Ms. Scherer follows in the footsteps of her brother Stephen, an Olympic rifleman (2008) who took his own life in 2010. Sarah competed in the London Olympics, placing seventh in three events. TTAG salutes her discipline, fighting spirit, perseverance and, of course, marksmanship.

    and she’s pretty damn good with a rifle, too.

    I know. I’m very naughty. The gun made me do it.

      prone…standing…kneeling

      Ralph, you’re an out of the box thinker. Those terms went right over my head.

    2. avatar speedracer5050 says:

      Don’t feel bad Ralph!! I shot a perfect 200 prone and standing and my rifle was still in the closet!! 😉

    What happened to my innocent comment about wanting to see her in a bikini at the beach?

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      Not so innocent, eh Mr. Bond?

      1. avatar Aharon says:

        Sure it is all innocent. Can’t you see the glowing halo circling my head?

        1. avatar speedracer5050 says:

          Aha!!! So that is where my Halo went!! Told my girlfriend I didn’t leave it at another woman’s house!!! 🙂
          Sorry Aharon I just couldn’t help myself!!!

        2. avatar Aharon says:

          speedracer,

          No problemo. I might be lending the halo to some Washington DC politicians, socialites, and generals who are in deep doo-doo this week.

      Hey she is a great shooter, and cute to boot. Now if she was an Israeli Supermodel RF would be all over this like white on rice! 😉

        That would be tahini sauce on pita bread.

    way to go!

    I hope she doesn’t follow too closely in his footsteps

    @Aharon!! Wow!! That Halo must have gotten pretty damn big to cover that Washington lineup. Wonder if there are any more of them on the store shelves??
    Hehe I might end up a Saint with a halo that powerful!!

    1. avatar Aharon says:

      You’d be a Saint. The politicos would end up in purgatory.

    Love to see Americans doing well in international shooting competitions.

    With our generally pro-gun culture, why don’t we win more of them? Thoughts?

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Because in amatuer sports, Americans are really amatures, and not state sponsored pros. American kids have to earn money and good grades.

      In the old iron curtain days I saw a match between the US and Poland. The Americans were 18-22 yo with 15 -20 matches. The poles were 28 to 35 with upwards of 200 fights each.
