April 14th 2014 Covington GA – Wyoming Antelope Club Juniors have claimed more wins at the USPSA Area 6 Championship. The southern seven states competed in a regional championship at South River Gun Club in Covington Georgia. 400 competitors in all and our Juniors took home the wood. Evan Gerlipp (shown in pic) won 1st C Class in Limited Division while Seth Clagg won 3rd overall and High Junior in Production.
Thank you to the WAC for giving these juniors opportunity and the skills to meet their goal in the upcoming World Shoot in October. Without the support of the WAC and its members these opportunities would not happen.
WAC junior shooter, Seth Clagg, recently competed in the US National Steel Championships in Titusville, FL. Seth won high junior in the rimfire match with a time of 81.81 seconds (9th place overall in all divisions out of 86) and won high junior in the centerfire match with a time of 106.20 seconds (26th place overall in all divisions out of 172). Seth is pictured with Chet Whistle who donated a Sig Sauer 1911-22 to the high rimfire junior.
Two juniors from the WAC have worked very hard over the past 3 years. So hard that they made it to the USPSA World Shoot Team. Jason Katz and Seth Clagg will be competing in the Production Division of IPSC’s biggest match. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for them both. With tremendous support from the Wyoming Antelope Club and several of the local competitors individual donations, these two have a good chance of winning at the biggest IPSC tournament in the world.
Also on the World Shoot Teams from the WAC is Keith Dilworth. Keith has been at the WAC for many years competing in Action Pistol, shotgun and multigun disciplines. As well Keith helped train Seth & Jason on their way to this elite status. It’s not easy getting to the World Shoot Team and the WAC has three of the top shooters in the USA.
As many people know the World Shoot XVII will be held this year in Florida at the Universal Shooting Academy. World Shoot is only held once every three years and is in a different country each time. This is such an opportunity for all of us to see the absolute top competitors from each country stretch it out over 30 stages. Make your plans early to visit Frostproof FL in October.
