Shooter brings home Ohio Sectional Production Title.


EXETER, NH –-( Team SIG SAUER shooter Matt Cheely opened his 2011 competitive season with a win over 81 other production shooters at the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Ohio Sectional Championship over the weekend.

“It was a relatively wide open match, with the stages requiring lots of shooting on the move,” Cheely said. “Some unique stage designs incorporating multiple activated targets played to my strengths and helped to push me to the win.”

Cheely’s score of 1096.1856 was less than one percentage point better than the second place shooter. Next up for Cheely will be the USPSA Area 5 Championship in Barry, Ill., on June 15. In the Production class, Cheely uses a P226® USPSA model.
