Jared Halbert Takes First Place, Teammate Ehea Schuerch Takes Second
Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, congratulates tactical athletes Jared Halbert and Ehea Schuerch for their strong performances at The Tactical Games Utah Regional Event. Halbert took home first place in the Men’s Elite Division while fellow teammate Schuerch placed second in the Women’s Elite Division.
Following his most recent win at the Tactical Games South Carolina match in the team event, Halbert returned to the podium as the winner of the Men’s Elite Division. Throughout the competition, Halbert ran a full suite of Blackhawk gear, including a T-Series® holster, Foundation Series Tac Nylon plate carrier and belt.
“Utah was very hot, and the smaller footprint of the Foundation Series Plate Carrier helped keep me comfortable,” Halbert said. “I was able to win both the action shooting stages during the match by having a holster that allows for quick draws and a sling that is fast to manipulate, which helps when tenths of a second matter. Several times I was also able to stow rifle magazines in the cummerbund of my plate carrier instead of in the very back of my belt, which allowed me to place my pistol pouches in more advantageous positions.”
Teammate Ehea Schuerch fought through injury and a fierce field of competitors to take second place in the Women’s Elite division.
“This weekend was an opportunity for me to put my last two months of training to the test,” Schuerch said. “On day two when I rolled my ankle, everything became a challenge – but it was me versus me. Thankfully, my Blackhawk gear is tough and reliable no matter the environment. I have put my holster belt and Foundation Series plate carrier through the ringer, and they still work flawlessly.”
