Csenge Claims Air Rifle, Smallbore International Titles

This is way cool. A college freshman shooter from Kentucky takes both the air rifle and the smallbore titles in Czechoslovakia.


Plzens, CZECHOSLOVAKIA -- Kentucky rifle freshman sensation Tom Csenge continued a stellar summer pace, claiming the men’s under-20 smallbore and air rifle championships in the 17th annual Meeting of the Shooting Hopes, held over the weekend in Plzens, Czechoslovakia.

“I am extremely proud of all three of our shooters,” Kentucky head coach and reigning Great American Rifle Conference Coach of the Year Harry Mullins said. “They have done an exceptional job for us and I am excited that they had the opportunity to continue this on an international level. For this to be Ashley Jackson's first international match, she held up very well. She will come away from this with a great learning experience that will help her greatly in the coming months. Andrew Roland and Tom also did a great job. For Andrew to come back in both finals, I think is a great accomplishment in his growth as a shooter. Tom having to make the move up in smallbore to win and then the next day having to hold the lead in air rifle is also a great accomplishment in his ability to perform under pressure.”
Next, The United States Nationals...
