Sherry had a two-day total of 2359, with the scores from this competitors becoming added to the scores from the second phase of the trials taking spot in March of subsequent year to decide which athletes will represent the U.S. in Tokyo.
Patrick Sunderman (Farmington, Minn.), also of the Army Marksmanship Unit, placed fifth in the finals, but his total of 2349 was excellent sufficient to move into second spot in the standings. In third spot in the all round standings is best junior competitor and Air Force Academy athlete Peter Fiori, Jr. (Lebanon, N.J.).
