ORANGE’S Lara Cowling and Lithgow’s Jeffrey Langlands have enjoyed top results at the 2014 Vintage ISSF Championships and Bathurst Pistol Club Invitational Zone Match this month.
The two pistol shooters lined up in a strong field of over 80 entries for the Vintage ISSF Championships at Cessnock Pistol Club.
Cowling finished second on the A grade Women’s Sport Pistol and was third in the B grade Standard and the A grade Women’s Air Pistol.
Langlands was on the podium four times winning the A grade 25m Standard Pistol and the B grade 25m Centre Fire, and finishing second in the B grade 25m Rapid Fire and the 10m Men’s Air Pistol.
This was an excellent result for Langlands after the Lithgow Pistol Club was extensively damaged by fires late last year, which has since hampered his ability to train.
Cowling and Langlands also lined up in the Bathurst Pistol Club Invitational Zone match this month.
The off the gun winner in the 25m Standard Pistol was Langlands, and the off the gun winner in the 25m Centre Fire/Sports was Cowling.
Cowling shot for Bathurst on the day and helped the club to a huge victory of almost 900 points.
Cowling and Langlands are in final preparation for the Pistol Australia National Championships to be held at Cessnock from April 13-20.
