Team Sig served up stellar performances in 2018, with members Max Michel, Lena Miculek and newcomer Daniel Horner dominating competitions.
Sig Sauer said its team members turned up the heat in 2018, delivering a record setting year for Team Sig. Michel, Team Sig Captain, placed his focus on Carry Optics competition in 2018, remaining undefeated as the USPSA National Carry-Optics Champion. This marks the third year in a row Michel has earned this title.
Additionally, Michel set four new world records at the World Speed Shooting Championships as well as adding “World Speed Shooting Champion” to his list of titles. In total, Michel was awarded 13 championship titles alongside his P320 XFIVE, ROMEO1 or ROMEO3 optics and Sig Sauer Match Elite Pistol Competition Ammunition in 9mm.
Miculek proved that competition runs through her veins, turning out impressive performances in the Pistol Caliber Carbine division. Winning seven “High Lady” titles in PCC, she added six more “High Lady” titles to her name in the open and optics division. Miculek also began the first female to earn a top five overall finish at the USPSA Nationals and finished off the year as the first woman to earn Grandmaster Class for PCC. Miculek opted for a P320 XFIVE pistol, SIG MPX PCC, ROMEO3 Optic, and Sig Sauer Match Elite Pistol Competition Ammunition in 9mm for her competition setup.
Joining Team Sig in September, Horner wow’d during his first match representing Team Sig. Earning a championship title at the 2018 Sig Sauer Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge, Horner leveraged his previous experience as Captain of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit to pop off a total of 547 rounds in 9 minutes. Horner’s setup includes a P320 XFIVE pistol with iron sights, a SIGM400 Rife with a TANGO6 Optic, Sig Sauer Match and Varmint .223 Ammunition and Match Elite Pistol Competition Ammunition in 9mm.
Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales for Sig Sauer, said the company is thrilled at Team Sig’s accomplishments and looks forward to seeing what Michel, Miculek and Horner achieve in the coming year.
“In 2018 Max set his sights on carry optics and raised the level of competition, Lena broke barriers for female professional shooters in PCC, and we only got a small glimpse of what Daniel will accomplish for Team Sig in 3-Gun competition,” Taylor said in a news release. “In 2019, I expect that each of them will continue their dominance by taking their competition to the next level with Sig Sauer pistols, rifles, optics, and ammunition.”
