AUSTIN, TX (AGirlandAGun.org) — “Pull!” was the anthem heard around the courses as 82 competitors participated in the 2nd Annual Women’s Clays Extravaganza Presented by CZ-USA Field Sports and hosted by A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG). The shoot included Trap, 5 Stand, and two different Main Event sporting clays courses. It took place August 27 & 28, 2021, at Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, KS.
CZ-USA Pro Staff hosted half-day clinics on the two days prior to the shoot. “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.”
Ranging from brand-new to sporting clays to Master-level shooters, the competitors varied in skills and experience. There were four Junior shooters in attendance. In addition, many shooters were pushed outside their comfort zones to try new shotgun sports that they had not competed in before.
“I shot trap for the first time and had a perfect 25 out of 25 straight hits my first round!” exclaimed Leslie Woolley from Cleburne, TX. “The Texas girls all had a great showing on clays and trap both. We have also had as much fun giggling as much as we have shooting!”
Medals were awarded to the Top 3 in sporting clays and the Top 3 in 5-stand and trap, as well as the Top 1 High Overall winner. The Top 10 Overall Finishers included:
|Competitor||NSCA Class||Trap||5 Stand||Main||Score|

Candy Lovelace from Ft Worth, TX, shared, “It was such a fantastic trip to Kansas this week for the A Girl & A Gun Clays Extravaganza! I shot a bunch of clays at a beautiful facility and made so many great new friends. Overall, I earned three punches, and best of all Susan Heintzman won her class on the hardest course there! Can’t wait until next year!”
