Team Beretta pulled out a dominating performance at the 2019 U.S. Open in Pennsville, New Jersey, earning 20 podium honors in six events.

The U.S. Open, held at M&M Hunting and Sporting Clays, saw Team Beretta members Zachary Kienbaum, Joseph Fanizzi, Meagan Harrington, Jared Greenwood, Diane Sorantino, Desirae Edmunds and Dominic Gross compete. Kienbaum took the runner-up position in the main event with his Beretta DT11 knocking 188 out of 200 targets. Additionally, he took two champion podium honors and third-place in the Super Sporting, 5-Stand and Master’s Cup events. Receiving fourth-place in the FITASC event, Kienbaum’s performance was awarded the HOA title during the White Flyer All-Around.

Fanizzzi earned a sub-junior podium finish, tackling 186 out of 200 targets with the A400 Xcel Sporting Black Edition by Beretta. He also was awarded three sub-junior champion podium honors in the Master’s Cup, Super Sporting and 5-Stand events. He too won a title in the White Flyer All-Around, winning the sub-junior champion title. Fanizzi is a recent recruit to Team Beretta, joining at the end of the 2018 competitive season.

Junior shooters Harrington and Greenwood pulled out solid performances with Harrington earning a ladies third place podium finish in the main event, ladies champion podium finish in the Super Sporting event and ladies champion title in the White Flyer All-Around event. Greenwood secured a podium finish in the junior 5-Stand event and junior third-place podium finish in Long Bird FITASC.

Edmunds took a ladies runner-up and ladies third-place finish in the Super Sporting and 5-Stand matches as well as the ladies runner-up title in the White Flyer All-Around while teammate Gross, another junior shooter, won the junior runner-up position in the Super Sporting match.

Rounding out the team captain Sorantino nabbed a ladies runner-up podium finish in the Master’s Cup event, narrowly beating out the third-place finisher by only two targets.

“With the entire team winning one or multiple podium titles during this competition, Team Beretta shooters surpassed their podium record from last year’s competition by 11 podiums,” the company said in a news release.

Team Beretta will continue to compete this season with the team headed to Columbus, Kansas in June for the 2019 North Central Regional.
