Lovre Sets New Record at the 2015 National Matches

Congratulations to Matt Lovre on his recent accomplishment. This article segment was originally posted on the CMP's eMagazine The First Shot written by Ashley Brugnone, CMP Writer. 
Full article can be found here: 

High junior of the match was Matthew Lovre, 18, of Jeannete, PA, with an exceptional aggregate score of 391-14x – a new National Record. After missing the President’s Hundred last year by one point, Lovre did more than make up for that point lost by finishing this year in eighth place overall.

High junior of the match was Matthew Lovre of Jeannete, PA, with an exceptional aggregate score of 391-14x – a new National Record. He finished in eighth place overall.
With his remarkable Shoot Off performance of 98-3x, Lovre managed to keep a calm demeanor throughout the competition – even alongside some of the best marksmen in the world.

“It’s an honor to see some of the nation’s greatest shots here all on one line, competing for such a magnificent trophy and championship,” he said. He went on, “I enjoy what I do very much. I don’t get nervous. I’m out here for fun.”

In the past, Lovre has taken advantage of the educational opportunities offered by the CMP during the National Matches, such as the Small Arms Firing School and the USMC Junior Highpower Clinic. He’s also connected with the PRPA (Pennsylvania Rifle & Pistol Association) and traveled with the group to Camp Perry for the fourth year.

“Now, I’ll just hang my plaque on the wall and get ready for next year,” he said. “I want to thank the CMP for holding these matches. I enjoy them very much, and so do all of our juniors.”
