Sarah “Sage Chick” Harp added to her trophy collection as she topped the Mideast Regional “Guns of August” cowboy action shooting competition.
The three-day event took place at the Middletown Sportsmen’s Club in Middletown, Ohio, Aug. 11-13 with more than 150 competitors from as far away as Australia competing.
Harp has dominated the women’s category for a decade and for the last seven years she has placed among the top 10 over-all shooters. She is also the reigning Ohio state champion and has previously won championships on the national and international levels.
Other Delaware County participants were Seth Newell, Rich Newell, Bret Dennis, Angie Green, Joe Zanbanini, Beth Harp and Rod Harp. Sarah, Angie, Beth and Rod all shot a clean match, not missing any of the nearly 300 targets.
Sarah is a graduate of Delaware Christian High School and the Ohio State University with a degree in animal science and is studying at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Along with past state and regional championships, she has won two national women’s championships and a pair of women’s over-all world championships.
