Classified as a High Master, Elsenboss was competing in the Service-Service Rifle category. In addition, her score netted her the National Service Rifle Championship (also setting a national record), as well as the High Woman award. And, with a score of 796-40X, Elsenboss secured the Vandenberg Cup this year by a three-point margin over the runner-up, Hugo B. Adelson.

The 2023 NRA National High Power Rifle Mid-Range Championship was held July 16-21 and won by Kim Rowe of Wadsworth, Ohio, with a score of 2396-171X.
