Army Reserve Soldier makes World Cup & Pan Am Game Pistol Teams
U.S. Army Reserve Staff Sgt. Sandra Uptagrafft, a truck driver with the 98th Training Division (Initial Entry Training), fires her pistol at the 2019 USA Shooting’s Pistol Spring Selection on Fort Benning, Georgia March 29-30. At the end of the two-day, 25m Pistol Match, the Phenix City, Alabama resident earned a spot on both the upcoming World Cup and Pan Am Game Teams with her solid performances. Uptagrafft, who is a 2012 Pistol Olympian, will compete in those upcoming games in hopes of earning the Unites States a 25m Pistol quota, or ticket to compete in the 2020 Olympics. Once the United States earns quotas in Olympic events, a U.S. Pistol Team will be selected, and Uptagrafft is hoping to make that team. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Maj. Michelle Lunato/released)
