Truett-McConnell Alum in NEGA Hall of Fame

Jodie Briggs Blacklock, a Truett-McConnell College graduate in the class of 2003, is one of five athletes now retired from their sports who will be inducted into the Northeast Georgia Sports Hall of Fame at a luncheon on August 29, 2009, at the Georgia Mountains Center in downtown Gainesville. 

The Sports Hall of Fame is a division of the Northeast Georgia History Center, located on the campus of Brenau University. 

Blacklock began her career as an air pistol markswoman when she was nine years old as a member of a 4-H BB gun team.  Five years later, when she was in the ninth grade, she began shooting air pistols in competitions. 

When she was a freshman at Truett-McConnell, she won the National Rifle Association Intercollegiate Pistol Championship by posting the highest combined score of precision air pistol and sport pistol.  In 2003, she finished first at the USA Shooting National Championships held at Fort Benning, GA. 

Blacklock, currently a resident of Washington State, received her bachelor’s degree from Clemson University after completing her two-year degree at Truett-McConnell. 

She says that she has enjoyed the opportunities to travel and meet many people in her career.  In Toronto in 2002 she won the silver medal in the International Junior Women’s 10-meter air pistol competition at the Crosman Airgun Grand Prix, the largest airgun competition in North America, drawing more than 250 international competitors. 

A wonderful opportunity, Blacklock says, was traveling with the world championship airgun team to Finland to compete in the Olympic Trials.
