I was introduced in trap shooting in 2012 and started shooting at my local club in Pennsylvania at the Orangeville Sportsman's Club. I started out shooting an over and under Charles Daley 12 Gauge for 2 years.
In 2013, I joined ATA and went on to win 3rd place in Sub-Junior for my first event in the state shoot with a 94 in singles.
In 2014, I got a BT-99 which made a huge change in my shooting. I started shooting 3 days a week at multiple clubs around the area getting prepared for the bigger shoots that summer. At this time I began to take trap shooting as serious as I could and went on to shoot the PA State Shoot, Westey Hogan, and PA Grand, placing almost every time in sub junior.
In 2015, I continued shooting and got multiple 97/100s and a few 98s and began to shoot handicap more serious. By 2016 I'm shooting better than I have ever been. I placed 2nd in C class for the state resident at the Keystone Open with a 189/200, and won junior handicap championship with a 90/100 and 4th overall. The highest score from over 150 people was a 94 beating many professional shooters that day.
Then another registered shoot came up with a 300 singles marathon and I shot a 280/300 in the clay buster. I am preparing myself for many events this year, including the Pennsylvania State Shoot, the Pennsylvania Grand, and Pennsylvania Wesley Hogan. I will also be competing in the New York State Shoot , Ohio State Shoot, and the Maine State Shoot. Each year I strive to get better, upgrade to a better gun, and attend more national shooting events around the country.
