UK Rifle’s Hanna Carr Wraps Summer with Team USA in Europe
LEXINGTON, Ky. and MUNICH and Pilsen,
Czech Republic – Kentucky rifle’s Hanna Carr wrapped her freshman season by
earning invaluable experience competing for Team USA against the world’s best shooters
in west-central Europe over the past few weeks.
Carr was part of the American team that won the women’s Gold Medal in 10-meter air rifle and 50m three-position rifle and silver in the 50m prone at the Meeting of the Shooting Hopes in Pilsen, Czech Republic.
Carr competed against world-class competition as part of USA Shooting’s mixed team of 16 youth and veteran shooters at the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup in Munich, Germany.
Carr, a Versailles, Kentucky, product, won the Women’s Three-Position Rifle title at NJOSC last month with two world-class Qualification scores. She also shot a 418.4 in Qualification during the Women’s Air Rifle competition – a score that would have placed her in the Finals at the most recent ISSF World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Carr won the Great American Rifle Conference air rifle title and was a smallbore first team All-American in her freshman season. She was second-team All-America selection in combined and air rifle.
She was also a Scholastic All-American.
