Tori Nonaka, a member of the Team Glock Shooting squad, has captured the USPSA National Ladies Championship win for the third year in a row. At 19, she is the youngest female shooter with three consecutive titles, according to this story from shootingwire.com.
Nonaka and Glock Team Captain Shane Coley recently returned form the Universal Shooting Academy in Florida where they competed in the 2014 USPSA Back to Back Handgun Nationals from October 4 to 10, competing in 42 courses, ammoland.com reported.
The Universal Shooting Academy has a reputation for representing the toughest shooting competitions in the country. Nonaka seized her opportunity to shine in the Limited 10 Division. She competed with a Glock 24 over three days of shooting, in which she gave up no points to her competitors. After the final stage of the match, she had secured the Limited 10 National Championship and the third of her career with Team Glock. Nonaka previously placed second in the Limited Division.
“I have to thank my family for their support through all of these years of travel and competition,” Nonaka said during the award ceremony. “Also to Glock for always believing in me and making my dreams come true this 2015 shooting season.”
Nonaka, originally from Woodbridge, Virginia, began shooting at age 3 and attended the U.S. Shooting Academy when she was 12, after which she became a competitive shooter. In 2011, a 15-year-old Nonaka was joining the Team Glock Shooting Squad. Since, she has competed in various disciplines including USPSA, SSCA, IPSC, IDPA, Bianchi and GSSF. In October, 2011, Nonaka was a member of the gold medal winning USA Ladies Standard Team at the IPSC World Shoot XVI in Rhodes, Greece.
