AUSTIN TX — A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) hosted its first Women’s Clays Championship on August 14-15, 2020, at Powder Creek Shooting Club in Lenexa, Kansas. The event comprised 67 women competitors, who traveled from 18 different states.
The High Overall Winner was 14-year-old Olivia Krauss from Olivet, MI. She had the top combined score for flights for sporting clays, trap, and 5-stand. Olivia received the one-of-a-kind HOA trophy crafted by Mean Gene Leather that featured the championship logo.
“We could not be more pleased with the turnout and experience that brought women together from across the country,” said Julianna Crowder, Founder of AG & AG. “The Women’s Clays Championship displayed a strong female presence in the world of shotgun sports. We were honored to be a part of it.”
The event, presented by CZ-USA, marked the first championship shoot specifically focused on increasing women’s participation in the sport. The CZ-USA Pro Team was on site for pre-tournament clinics and fun activities, including a flurry.
“One of my favorite things about AG & AG is the organization’s focus on education,” says Dave Miller, Shotgun Product Manager for CZ-USA. “Unlike so many misguided programs, AG & AG provides opportunities for its members to learn and grow in the shooting sports.”
Each participant received a high-quality shell pouch, a swag bag, and a random-draw prize. Prizes included eight shotguns from CZ-USA, Benelli, and Mossberg, as well as items from Voodoo Tactical, Briley, Brownells, Otis, Hunters Gold, Viktors Legacy, Mean Gene, Swab Its, Slip2000, Macks Earplugs, Wild Hare, Dene Adams, Hygenall, Hunters Blend Coffee, Plugr USA, RockTape, and Starlas Seasonings.
Trophies were awarded to the Top Five in sporting clays and the Top Three in 5-stand and trap, as well as the High Overall Average winner. More than $1,000 was divided up among Lewis Class winners.
The 2nd Annual Women’s Clays Championship will take place at Powder Creek Shooting Park on August 27-28, 2021.
