Former Schreiner student takes the bronze in World Cup trap shooting
Rachel Heiden, a member of last year’s Schreiner Shooting Sports Society team at Schreiner University, recently shot for the International Shooting Sports Federation World Cup women’s trap shooting bronze medal in Cairo. Heiden, who is a native of Clinton, Mich., was shooting for USA Shooting, with which she is training for the 2012 Olympics.

In her first World Cup appearance, Heiden took the bronze over Corey Cogdell, who won bronze for the U.S. in this event at the 2008 Olympics, and other competitors with more international experience.

“It is unheard of that a college woman comes out of nowhere and wins a medal at the World Cup,” said Bill Thomas, who coaches the Schreiner team.

Heiden plans to return to Schreiner to finish her degree in fall 2009.
