Unprecedented Double
Additional Time To Practice Paid Off For Matarese

Anthony Matarese Jr. is just 24 years old and less than 2 years out of college, but he accomplished something this year that no shooter had done before he won both the U.S. Open and the National Sporting Clays Championship.

"It wasn't anything I really set out to do, but at the same time, it's my goal to win every shoot I'm in," the Pennsville, N.J. resident said. "It was pretty cool afterward when I realized I'd won them both in the same year, but at the time I didn't really feel like I'd done anything all that spectacular."

The Nationals victory came just last month at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio, Texas. The U.S. Open wrapped up in early June in Jennings, La.

"This was the first year I'd had in awhile when I could totally dedicate myself to shooting. I didn't have school hanging over my head, with all the studying at night.

"I shot a lot in high school and I continued to shoot through college, but I just didn't have the same kind of time to practice." More
