Eric Harvey of Team Winchester set the tone for sporting clays shooters not long after rolling into Palmyra, Tennessee, earlier this month for the 2022 National Sporting Clays Association Southeast Regional. He walked away from the match with top honors and a $3,000 payout after triumphing over 591 fellow competitors in the main event.
Harvey secured the High Overall title in the main event after nailing 195 of 200 targets, edging out fellow Team Winchester shooter and the High Overall runner-up, Joe Fanizzi, by one bird. This was Harvey’s first regional victory after posting multiple podium finishes this year.
The 2022 NSCA Southeast Regional, held September 6-11, was the seventh event on this year’s eight-stop NSCA Championship Tour, Powered by Winchester, and was hosted by Cross Creek Clays, a beautiful new club near the Cumberland River.
