Following a solid performance in the Leupold-Warne Northwest MultiGun Challenge, Katie Harris has passed FNH USA’s Dianna Liedorff to regain the top spot in the 3GN Lady Division. Harris’ 75.213 points earned in the Tactical division at NW propelled her past Liedorff on the leader board, with Harris now leading 207.18 to 191.20.
Liedorff had established an early lead, earning points in the Open division, while Harris has competed primarily in Tactical Optics. But Harris’ 75-percent of match winner Burton Thompson gave the junior enough to regain the 3GN Lady Division lead.
Defending 3GN Lady Champion Kay Miculek currently sits in fourth place with two 3GN Lady scores posted.
Junior Lena Miculek currently sits in third at 168.76 points, with mother Kay Miculek in fourth at 150.66 points. The big difference here is that Kay only has two Lady Division scores to Lena’s three. Although Lena is coming off her best points match of the season (and this only her first season in 3-gun), the numbers say Kay, who averages around 75 points per match in Open, will pass her daughter.
So the 3GN Lady Division figures to be a three-way sprint to the finish between Harris, Liedorff and Kay Miculek for the top spot, while Lena Miculek battles to fend off Sharon Griffin, Bethany Harris, and possibly even Julie Golob, who is registered, for the final berth in the 3GN Lady Shoot-Off under the lights in Las Vegas. There the ladies will battle for the title of 3GN Lady Division Champion, along with a $5,000 cash payout from Hornady.
In only her first year of 3-gun competition, Lena Miculek is already challenging among the top ladies in 3-gun.
