CAMP PERRY, Ohio -
Rising senior Joseph Todaro edged Ohio State's Lyman Remington by a point, 2367-2366, to capture the Collegiate Smallbore Three-Position title at the NRA National Outdoor Rifle and Pistol Championships held at Camp Perry, Ohio, this week.
Todaro, who fired respective scores of 1186 (78) and 1181 (70), finished eighth overall among a competitive field of 200 shooters that included Olympians, members of the Army Marksmanship Unit, along with the nation's top junior and collegiate shooters.
Joseph Hall (2383-171) and Jason Parker (2380-156), Olympians and members of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, finished first and second, respectively, in the race to capture the NRA 3-Positiont title.
Hall tied with former TCU All-American Erin Lorenzen for the top score (1190) the opening day, then went on to clinch the title with an 1193 the final day. Parker, who was tied with four others, to include Army's Todaro, for fifth place the first day after posting an 1186, fired an 1194 to beat fellow marksmanship members Joseph Hein and Lorenzen by a point with a 2380 to clinch runner-up honors.
Ranking among the top five scorers the first day, Todaro's closest collegiate rival was West Virginia's Amy Bock, who was 15th with an 1179, while Lyman stood 20th (1177). A two-time NRA Smallbore All-American, Todaro's first-day performance proved the difference in holding on to beat Lyman for the National Collegiate title with a two-day score of 2367. Lyman's 1189 the final day allowed him to jump into ninth place overall along with drawing to within a point of Todaro to earn runner-up honors in the collegiate competition.
Also competing from Army was rising senior Richard Calvin (2330), who finished among the top collegiate shooters and 32nd overall.
