Hillsdale College Freshman Wins Gold at World Shotgun Championship

HILLSDALE, Michigan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jordan Sapp, a freshman from Hillsdale College, Phoenix, Ariz., won a gold medal at the ISSF Junior World Cup in Suhl, Germany on May 18. Sapp, who signed up for the Hillsdale College shotgun team, helped the United States team win six medals.

Shotgun coach Jordan Hintz said he was confident Sapp would be an asset to the Hillsdale College shotgun team.

“I’m incredibly excited to have Jordan with us. He has a record of success, and I look forward to seeing the accomplishments he will have both individually and as part of the Chargers shotgun team. “said Hintz.

Sapp took the podium in Germany, along with teammate Aidin Burns, winning gold in the men’s team skeet event. Sapp then faced his own teammates, Benjamin Keller and Grace Fulton, in the mixed team skeet competition where he won his second medal.

“Germany was an amazing trip. Being part of the USA Shooting Junior World team has been a fantastic experience,” said Sapp. “Aiden, Ben and I managed to pull off an incredible qualifying score for the team event which took us to the gold medal match… Bringing home two World Cup medals for the United States team is a surreal experience.”

The Hal and Jean Glassen Memorial Foundation’s partnership with the USAS Junior Team laid the foundation for Sapp’s victory. The team trained at the John A.

“I look forward to becoming a freshman at Hillsdale College in the fall,” Sapp said. “I am fortunate to be part of the Hillsdale shooting team where I will train to represent Hillsdale College and Team USA.”
