Beretta Presents Inaugural Scholarship at SCTP Nationals

Gold-level Sponsor, Beretta expanded the support of the Scholastic Clay Target Program with the inaugural Cav. Ugo Gussalli Beretta Skeet Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to the high school-aged, top athlete in American Skeet (male or female) shooting a Beretta Shotgun at the 2020 SCTP National Championship!

"The biggest supporters of our program consistently go above and beyond to give back to these young athletes, said SCTP National Director, Tom Wondrash. "Since its inception, the Beretta Scholarship has been a popular competition within the National Championship events. Every year we have athletes who shoot Beretta shotguns sign up to see who comes out on top, receiving honors from one of our biggest program sponsors. It is in an incredible honor to have the President of Beretta become personally involved in this scholarship for our young athletes. Actions like Beretta's are a strong indication that the industry recognizes the philanthropic value in supporting these kids and how that contributes to nurturing shooting sports as a whole."

Congratulations to Soren Hanson of the KCCL Orange Crushers, shooting a 198/200 in American Skeet! For his performance, Beretta provided Soren a Beretta 694. Soren will be attending Northern Michigan University this fall for Construction Management.

An additional opportunity to receive honors from Beretta at Nationals came during the Skeet Doubles Individual shoot-offs, where any athletes whose scores ending in a 4, 7, or 9 were invited to shoot a round of doubles skeet. Colin Davis of the Forest City Juniors shot the winning round of 49/50 after shooting a competition round of 97/100 and was awarded a Beretta A400 Action!
