Kutz Captures Two Gold Medals in 2016 JORC, by Deb Lyman – Kaitlyn Kutz, from the Cos Cob Rifle & Revolver Club, captured the Gold Medal in both of the Women’s events in the Connecticut State Junior Olympic Rifle Championships (JORC). For the 16-year old Darien resident, the win was especially fitting since she has her “sights” set on a collegiate cadet life at the US Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), one of the venues for the match. Not wanting to risk having a possible “less than stellar” performance on any given day, she selected Saturday to fire her air gun match and make the three-hour round trip back to the range on Sunday for smallbore rifle. Exercising caution was not required, though, as she posted gold medal scores for both matches. For air rifle, her first 10-shot string was a 97, followed by three consecutive 95’s to finish the women’s 40-shot match. The real bonus for her, though, was her personal best (PB) score of 569 in the smallbore rifle event, 34 points higher than she fired in the same match in 2015. These two scores also qualify her as the Women’s Connecticut State Resident Champion Qualifier in both events for an invitation to the National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships (NJOSC), at the USA Shooting Olympic facility, Colorado Springs, April, 2016.
