Federal Ammunition sponsored shooter Payton DeTavernier won the Women’s Doubles Trap division and also claimed the Combined American Trap Events Overall title. Now a national champion, DeTavernier is a college student on the Shooting Sports Shotgun Team at Doane University in Nebraska.

“This championship win was something I really wanted and I couldn’t be happier,” said DeTavernier. “I have worked extremely hard to accomplish this and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my parents, Federal Ammunition and my other sponsors. It means so much to me that I have an amazing support system and people who are always there to help me.”

DeTavernier posted a score of 99 in Doubles American Trap to win Category 2, while in tne Combined American Trap Events she had a combined score of 196 to win the Overall title.

There were only 150 women shooters that hit at least 200 targets to make the standings board.

She gave credit to her Federal target loads for her success at ACUI this year.

“I shot Federal Top Gun loads at the ACUI Collegiate Clay Targets National Championships this year. I have always trusted and liked them,” said DeTavernier. “However, for upcoming ATA competitions and for practice purposes, I will shoot the new Federal High Over All. I love these new HOA loads because they are a Premium load that shoots the same every time. I can see the precision in my breaks and my scores, these loads are awesome.”
