Student Stories: Caitlin Weinheimer
Caitlin Barney Weinheimer is a Schreiner University sophomore and a champion sports shooter with the Schreiner Shooting Sports Society. She is planning on being a member of the U.S. Olympic team in London in 2012. In 2009,
- she was the number one Junior Women’s trap shooter in the United States with an average score of 86.3 percent, less than 2 percentage points off the score of Beijing Olympic bronze medalist in this event, Corey Cogdell.
- she took the gold in women’s international trap at the National Collegiate Championship 41st Association of College Unions International Clay Target Championships in San Antonio.
- won the gold medal for High Lady in the Zone 8 Championship, A2 in the Main Event, and A4 in the Preliminary Event at Bahama Mama International Skeet and Trap Competition
“When I went up to meet the other shooters on my squad, none of them had heard of Schreiner University, but I’ll bet they remember the Schreiner name now,” Weinheimer said after a national match. “The fact that I won this event and put Schreiner on the national map made it just that much more special.”
