SMYRNA, Ga. – April 22, 2019 Team GLOCK kicked off the 2019 shooting season with member Ashley Rheuark taking first place at the 2019 Florida Open Championship and Captain Shane Coley taking home first place at Alabama Section Championship.
The winning continued during their first National Competitions in April. Coley and Rheuark competed against a lineup of top competitors to each take home a National championship in their respective divisions. Rheuark competed in the USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals, held April 3-7 in Frostproof, FL, with 180 shooters competing across twelve stages, and she defended her National Lady title in the Tactical Division using a GLOCK 34.
Coley competed at the US Steel Challenge Nationals, held April 4-6 in Covington, GA, with 460 shooters over 8 stages and won the Production Division with a GLOCK 34. “Steel Challenge has always been a challenging discipline for me mentally,” said Coley. “It is a different format that I have been working hard to succeed at for many years. With the support of GLOCK, I have been able to correct my weaknesses and prove that the GLOCK platform can compete in all forms of competitive shooting.”
Coley and Rheuark continued their winning streaks as they both competed in one of the largest area championships, the USPSA Area 6 Championship in Okeechobee, FL, and both won their respective divisions.
