Byerly’s final score was 115.03.

He commented, “The 2nd Annual Mountaineer IDPA Classic continued its tradition of fast and furious stages in a picturesque setting. Ten courses of fire with multiple options led to much discussion between my teammate Morgan Allen and myself. Targets from 3 yards to 35 yards offered an opportunity to check my training progress for the upcoming World Shoot. Match conditions are where your training is validated. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to the excellent staff!”

Allen placed a respective second in the ESP Division with a score of 121.39. Allen reflected on his performance at his first match since his wrist surgery: “It’s great to return to the game through a match several teammates also happen to be attending. Training as a team, exchanging ideas, opportunities for improvement, match strategy, etc. – it all adds up to a reminder that while personal initiative and drive mean a lot, teams add another layer of value one person alone cannot.”

Torres-Reyes continues her High Lady reign with a final score of 153.76.

“The match was very straight forward and fun to shoot. For me, my favorite stage was a 35 yard shot on a target that had a non-threat and hard cover in front of it,” commented Torres-Reyes. “Due to my recent training at ITI, I approached it with confidence, and was thrilled when I shot it zero down. The cheer from my wonderful squad mates, and a nearby squad of my ITI teammates, was priceless!”

Torres-Reyes’ can next be seen competing at the IDPA Patriot Match, held in Lewiston, PA August 27th – 28th, 2011. Byerly can be seen in the 2011 EGW Area 8 Championship, held at the Fredericksburg Rod & Gun Club in Fredericksburg, VA September 1-5, 2011.
