ACCOKEEK, MD (April 18, 2008) — Beretta Team Shooter Anthony Matarese, Jr. won the National F.I.T.A.S.C. Championship held at Hermitage Farms Shooting Sports in Camden, SC April 11-13, 2008.  Over 200 shooters fought high wind and rain during the shoot, making Matareses’ winning score of 190/200 even more spectacular considering the adverse weather conditions. Despite the bad weather, Matarese finished Saturday with a 72/75.  Matarese’s winning performance was accomplished using a Beretta Urika 2 Gold Sporting Semi-Automatic with a 30” barrel.

This is Matarese’s second major win in 2008.  He has also won the Browning/Briley Open at Cajun Elite in March.  Fellow Team Beretta Shooter Gregg Wolf also performed well in the National F.I.T. A.S.C. Championship, finishing M2 with a 183/200.
