Kutz Earns Top 5 Performance in ISSF World Junior Championships
Following a 14-day match in South America, Army Yearling Captain Kyle Kutz returns stateside following a Top 5 performance in the ISSF World Championships. While shooting his way to a tie for third place, based his 621.5 score in the Prone, Kutz ultimately fell short of the podium in a 10-shot tiebreaker to secure a fourth-place finish.
“We are so proud of Kyle. This was his first, high-profile, international match and he rocked it. He went shoulder-to-shoulder with the best shooters in the world and achieved impressive results,” said Army Rifle Head Coach Web Wright.
“I think traveling to Peru, experiencing the different cultures and experiencing what it's like to represent his country will have a lasting impact on him. These things are important for his development as an officer. Being able to compete in Lima was great for him and great for the program.”
Following his first appearance for Team USA in the Prone, Kutz competed in the 3x40 where he claimed 20th on the leaderboards with a 1154-43x score.
