OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – April 14, 2023 – Blackhawk, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, congratulates tactical athlete Ehea Schuerch for her third-place finish in the Women’s Elite division at The Tactical Games Texas regional event. Schuerch’s most recent win marks back-to-back podium finishes for the new Blackhawk athlete to kick off the 2023 Tactical Games season.
Schuerch hit the ground running with Team Blackhawk this year, winning her first match at The Tactical Games Mississippi regional event in February. Competing once again in the Women’s Elite Division, Schuerch utilized her Blackhawk T-Series L2D holster, Blackhawk Foundation Series plate carrier, MOLLE belt, and Blackhawk Multi-Point rifle sling to secure third place against a tough field of competitors.
“The competition was fierce at the Texas event and I had so much fun fighting until the end with this group of badass women,” Schuerch said. “I focused my efforts on the things I could control, and I fought hard on day two to come back and earn a place on the podium. My light weight and low-profile Foundation Series gear allowed me to move faster and, as always, my T-Series holster performed flawlessly in some challenging courses.”
A Spokane, Washington native, Schuerch began competing at The Tactical Games in 2022, where she quickly became one of the games’ fiercest competitors. Last year at the National Championship in Florence, Texas, Schuerch placed second amongst a group of 15 elite female competitors.
Schuerch’s next competition will be at the Washington, UT, regional event in May.
