blackhawk®leader in law enforcement and military equipment for more than 20 years, congratulates tactical athlete Ehea Schuerch on her first place finish in the Women’s Elite division of The Tactical Games 2023 Mississippi Regional event, which took place on the 18th and 19th February in Meridian, Mississippi.

The win is Schuerch’s first as a member of the Blackhawk team, and during the competition he raced his Blackhawk T-Series.® Foundation series holster and plate holder.

“I’m excited to start this season with a win,” said Schuerch. “The location in Meridian was amazing and I’m glad we made the trip from Eastern Washington. I geared up for the game with my trusty T-Series case and the Blackhawk Foundation Series. The simplistic and minimalist design of the Foundation Series Plate Carrier is perfect for what I do in tactical gaming. It is important that the bike rack is as light as possible, which makes me faster, and there is no additional material for it to get caught on an obstacle while racing.”

A Spokane, Washington native, Schuerch began competing in The Tactical Games in 2022, where she quickly became one of the games fiercest competitors. Last year at the National Championships in Florence, Texas, Schuerch placed second among a field of 15 elite competitors.

Outside of competition, Schuerch has served as a corrections officer at the Spokane County Jail for seven years, where she is also the only woman to join the jail’s Correctional Response Team (CRT). In addition, she has been a defensive tactics instructor for nearly six years and recently became EMT certified.

Schuerch’s next competition will be at the Texas Shooting Academy in Florence, Texas on March 18-19.he.
