Several Team Beretta shooters have recently been named to national All-American teams within their respective disciplines. These teams include the 2018 ATA All-American and the 2018 NSCA All-American for the 12-gauge shotgun discipline.
The NSCA 12-Gauge All-American Team honors those sporting clays shooters who excel at the challenge of competing in 12-gauge events based on the All-American Points System, in which there is a 200-target minimum. Annually, three teams of ten shooters per category will be recognized for their performance in this discipline.
Desirae Edmunds was named as the captain of the NSCA All-American Ladies First team alongside her teammate Diane Sorantino.
Both Zachary Kienbaum and Anthony Matarese, Jr. were named to the Open First team along with Team Beretta junior shooter Dominic Gross, who was named to the Open Third team.
Jared Greenwood finished up the group by being named to the Junior First Team.
“Team Beretta is made up of a very diverse and accomplished group of athletes that compete across several different disciplines. Once again, our Sporting Clay/FITASC Team and now our Trap Team are being recognized for their accomplishments by being elected to both the NSCA 12-Gauge and ATA All-American Teams. We are excited for all of them and look forward to a great season,” Brenda Morgal, Marketing Operations and Events Manager, said.
The ATA All-American Team also recognizes those who earned a requisite number of points throughout the 2017 trap shooting competitive season based on a minimum number of targets set forth for each category.
Jacque Snellenberger was named to 2018 ATA All-American Lady I First Team, with a total number of 1,282 points. We are especially excited for Snellenberger, as she is an educator and is limited in the number of events she can attend early in the season.
