Accokeek, Maryland — Team Beretta Shooter Dan Carlisle won the 2008 Seminole Cup at Quail Creek Plantation in Okeechobee, Florida last week. With nearly 500 registered shooters, the 2008 Seminole Cup was the largest shoot in its history. The main event was shot on two courses totaling 28 stations – the Red Course and the Blue Course. On the first day of competition Carlisle boasted a 92 on the Red Course, leaving him one behind fellow Team Beretta Shooter Anthony Matarese, Jr., who was the high-gun with a 93. On the final day however, Carlisle fired a 90 on the Blue Course, overtaking Matarese and the remaining field by two targets with a total of 182/200. Carlisle continues to use his Beretta DT10 Sporter to find the Victory Podium at major shoots across the country.

After nearly 39 years of competitive shooting under his belt, Dan has quite an impressive list of accomplishments to date. These include being on the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Teams , 1984 Olympic Bronze Medalist in Trap, 1982 World Skeet Champion, 1983 World Record Holder, 1999 Silver Medalist World Sporting Clay Championships, to name a few. Dan also recently was crowned the 2007 NSCA National Champion this past November.

Other notable performances by Team Beretta Shooters at the Seminole Cup include Anthony Matarese, Jr. M5, Diane Sorantino L4, Will Fennell M3 in FITASC and Darby Fennell L3 in FITASC and L2 in Five-Stand.

“Dan is truly an accomplished shooter that continues to add wins to his already impressive resume. We are extremely pleased to have him as part of the Beretta shooting team,” stated Rebecca Etchen, Marketing Manager, Victory Shooter. “His performance at the Seminole Cup against some of the best shooters in the country is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations to fellow Team Beretta Shooter Anthony Matarese, Jr. who finished fifth overall and also to the other Team Beretta Shooters. It is a great way to start the year.”
