Feb. 4, 2011
FORT WORTH, Texas - USA shooting has tabbed Sarah Scherer, a sophomore on the TCU rifle team, its ELEY Athlete of the Month. Scherer most recently took home a gold medal at the Bavarian Championships in Munich, Germany.
Here is a look back at her journey in Munich:
On day two, Scherer fired a 397 in the qualification round, putting her in a three-way tie for third place with Slovenia's Ziva Dvorsak and Austria's Olivia Hofmann. In the final round, Scherer fired a 101.1 to finish with a final score of 498.1, which placed her in fourth place.
USA National Rifle Coach Major Dave Johnson had this to say about Scherer, "Sarah had a strong performance in Germany. She made up two points on the leader and dominated the final. I expect her to continue to learn this spring and emerge as one of the contenders for London."
As a 2010 addition to the National Rifle Team, Scherer has qualified to compete in three World Cups this year in Women's 10m Air Rifle.
