2014 USA Shooting National Junior Olympic Team members
Team Kolar members Jordan Hintz and Cheyenne Waldrop may have been the only 2 out of 226 entries in the USA Shooting National Junior Olympic Championships competing with Kolar guns but both of the young athletes proved they and their equipment were up for the task as each of them made the match final (top six competitors) in their events and both have been re-named to their respective USA Shooting teams again for 2014.
For this event, held July 8th to 12th at Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs, USA Shooting used a modified points system which added finals points to the qualification scores, rather than the normal match finals to determine the medal winners and team appointments.
In the ladies trap event, Waldrop would finish the five qualification rounds with 112 of 125 targets placing her in 4th of 36 ladies before the semi-final round, subsequent shoot-offs and medal matches. When all was said and done, the young Californian would end up in fourth place in the overall championship earning the J2 (15-17 year old) division gold medal and was renamed to the USAS National Junior Team for the second consecutive year.
Hintz competed in both the mens trap and double trap events and made the match final (top six) in both events. The Wisconsin athlete entered the final in the trap event in a three-way tie for 2nd of 116 athletes with 118 of 125 targets but came up 6th after the single-shot semi-final. In double trap, Jordan broke 127 of 150 targets placing him into the final 5th of 51 competitors. In a 30mph wind and drizzle, he broke 25 of 30 in the semi-final and moved into the gold medal match. Following a 20-minute lightning delay, Jordan saved the best for last running a perfect 30 in the gold medal match which under normal rules would have given him the gold medal and Junior Olympic Championship. However, with the modified point system, it placed him 4th overall. He was named to the USAS Junior Olympic Squad for the third consecutive year.
Both members of Team Kolar use the new Max Lite barrels when competing in International disciplines for USA Shooting competitions and both are planning to compete in the USAS National Shotgun Championships from August 1st to 10th in Colorado Springs.
