Women dominated the podium during the 2022 National Games Matches, which took place during the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) National Rifle Matches at Camp Perry. In fact, national record scores were set by women in four of seven main events, according to a report by CMP’s Ashley Dugan. Here’s how it breaks down:

  • Kerri Lewis, 46, of Middletown, Rhode Island, scored a 271-4X in the Vintage Military Match, shattering the previous High Woman record by 13 points.
  • Meghann Beaver, 23, of Indianapolis, Indiana, also set a national record in the High Woman category of the Springfield Match, besting the prior record score (held by Lewis) by five points at 287-9X.
  • Maisey Loucks, 27, of Mechanicville, New York, earned High Woman in the Carbine match with a new national record score—surpassing the old record by three points;
  • Madelynn Schnelle, 15, of Crawfordsville, Indiana, scored 283-5X (one point over the previous record) in the John C. Garand Match to claim the High Woman honor.

The National Games Matches are the CMP’s own lineup of recreational-style vintage and modern rifle competitions. The events provide unique challenges to competitors while also celebrating the legacy of each remarkable firearm on the historic grounds of Camp Perry—home to the National Matches for more than a century.
