Joe Fanizzi of Team Winchester Wins NSCA South Central Regional

Event number four of the NSCA Championship Tour, Powered by Winchester, is complete, and Team Winchester shooter Joseph Fanizzi achieved high honors as the event champion. The South Central Regional was hosted by Providence Hill Farm Sporting Club in Jackson, Mississippi, with over 550 shooters participating.  

Fanizzi, the 2021 NSCA National champion, entered day two of the Winchester main event two targets behind several competitors and knew that he would likely have to shoot a perfect score on the Mustang course in order to be in the running for high overall. When the scores were tabulated, Fanizzi and fellow competitor David Radulovich were tied with a total of 196 targets each. A shoot-off ensued, and Fanizzi added a Regional Championship trophy to his already impressive list of achievements for the year. 

Teammate and mentor Zachary Kienbaum also had a stellar performance, winning high overall in the FITASC event and narrowly missing the podium in the main event, 5-stand and super sport events.

The Winchester Ladies Cup continues its run as well, with a highly competitive class of female shooters. Results from the South Central event included:
