Parker Wins Open Rifle While Furrer, Peck and Ibarra Lead Juniors in Rifle and 3x20 at 2011 Camp Perry Open

By Steve Cooper, CMP Writer


SFC Jason Parker cruised to victory in the precision air rifle division of the 2011 Camp Perry Open. SFC Parkerís two-day aggregate score of 1394.9 out of a possible 1400 set the standard for the event.

CAMP PERRY, OHIO Ė SFC Jason Parker, 36, a member of the US Army Marksmanship rifle team, captured the 2011 Camp Perry Open 60-shot precision rifle championship with an aggregate score of 1394.9. He topped national development team member Amy Sowash, 26, of Richmond, Kentucky (1390.6) and West Virginia Universityís Bryant Wallizer, 23, of Little Orleans, Maryland (1388.3) in the two-day standing event at the CMP North Marksmanship Center on 15 and 16 January.

SFC Parker qualified with an opening 597 on Saturday and followed with a 592 the next day. He needed his impressive 700.4 Day I aggregate to outlast a determined Sowash who fired a 695.9 to lead all Day II shooters. Parkerís 103.4 and 102.5 finals were enough to ensure a four-point overall victory.

Sowash and Wallizer entered the final with matching 1186 qualifying scores with Sowash ahead on center shots.

The Ohio State Universityís Amanda Furrer was the high junior shooter in the 60-shot standing event, placing fifth overall and firing the highest finals score (104.4).

Amanda Furrer, 20, of Spokane, Washington, a sophomore member of The Ohio State University and national development teams, led all juniors in the precision rifle event with an aggregate score of 1380.1, topping OSU freshman teammate Amanda Luoma, 18, of Cortland, Ohio (1374.7) and Amos Peck, 17, of Leslie, Michigan (1369.9). Furrer was fifth overall and she fired the high final of the event (104.4) on Day II.
The USAMUís Josh Olson fired qualification scores of 598 and 599 out of 600 possible each day to place first in the disabled shooter division. Olson is hoping to earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic or U.S. Paralympic team next year at the 2012 London Games.

Josh Olson, 31, a member of the USAMU team, won the disabled prone rifle competition with an aggregate of 1402.4. Mike Dickey, 53, finished second with an 1180. Thomas Monto, 68, of Midland, Michigan won the standing disabled competition with an aggregate of 1382.2 and Greg Drown, 50, of Fremont, Ohio followed with an even 1000 aggregate.
Amos Peck narrowly defeated MacKenzie Martin in the 3x20 final and the next day fought his way into the Day 1 60 final by defeating Matt Wallace in a shoot-off for the eighth spot.

Peck is a member of the Michigan State University Rifle and Pistol Club and he also won the Camp Perry Open 3x20 championship on Friday night, 14 January. He outlasted a gutsy performance by 13-year-old MacKenzie Martin, of Fairhaven, Massachusetts who was firing in her first-ever final. She qualified for the final ahead of Peck based on center shots, 40 to 35, each entering with scores of 587 apiece.

At just age 13, MacKenzie Martin set two under-14 national records at the Camp Perry Open and appeared in her first-ever precision rifle final. Martin entered the 3x20 CPO final with the lead and held it until the eighth shot and finished second by just nine-tenths of a point overall to Amos Peck, 687.9 to 687.0.


The lead changed hands a few times during the final and it was dead-even after four shots at 628.1. Martin edged ahead on the fifth shot by one point and she held the lead during the sixth and seventh shots. An excited Martin said afterward she knew her lead might be in jeopardy when she sailed a shot wide to the eight ring on her eighth shot, falling back four-tenths of a point. Peck closed with a 10.4 and a 10.6 and ended the youthful Martinís dream of winning Ė 100.9 to 100.0, and an aggregate of 687.9 to 687.0.
MacKenzie Martinís father, Sid, embraces his daughter after her record-setting performance in the Camp Perry Open 3x20 final at the CMP North Marksmanship Center. Martin began her shooting career at age nine after taking a hunter safety course at a local shooting club. She joined the clubís shooting team and has quickly become one of the nationís top young shooting prospects.
