Keith Trapp also coached the winning squad, Team USA F-TR Blue. Comprised of Kimberly Rowe, Tracy Hogg, Brad Suave, Luke Ramsey, and Ian Klemm, TEAM USA F-TR captured first overall, setting a new National Record of 796-40X.
“In order to win you must have the confidence in your ammunition,” commented Keith. “This is why I use Lapua.”
