KINGMAN - Just over six years ago, 11-year-old Kirsten Shawn picked up a shotgun and shot her first round of trap at the Mohave Sportsman Club's shotgun range.

She didn't do too bad at it on her first round, and decided she was going to pursue trap shooting in a serious way.

Now the bubbly 17-year-old senior who is going to graduate later this year from Kingman High School is on top of the trap shooting world, at least in Arizona.

Shaw recently returned from the 2014 Arizona State Trapshooting Championships that were held during spring break at the Ben Avery shooting range in Phoenix.

Shaw who was out of school on spring break, participated in a number of contests, including trap singles, trap doubles and handicap singles.

On Day 1, Shaw participated in trap doubles in the junior division. She hit 87 of 100 to win the event.

On Day 2, Shaw hit an amazing 196 of 200 to win juniors division trap singles from the 16 yard line.

She finished sixth in handicap singles, posting a score of 95 of 100 from the 20-yard line.

Fellow Kingman resident Joshua Schanaman was the high shooter in that event, breaking 97 of 100 clays.

Kingman resident Jack Cavender, who was shooting in the sub junior class, won that event with a score of 96 of 100 while Brandon Matschke of Kingman won the junior class with a 96 of 100.

Shaw won a number of trophies and belt buckles for her shooting prowess. By being the high overall junior shooter in the state, Shaw won the Paul Wolf memorial buckle.

Shaw also won a special award from the Arizona Trapshooting Association that is called the AIM (Academics-Integrity-Marksmanship) Shamrock shoot. For her accomplishment, Shaw received a custom hand-tooled leather shooting bag and her trap shooting fees will be paid when she attends the Grand America shoot this summer in Sparta, Ill.

Shaw will be participating in the Commissioners Cup for the Scholastic Clay Target Program in a few weeks, and is a member of the Lake Havasu City Clay Slayers.

Shaw has also been a member of Kingman's Mohave Top Guns SCTP shooting team.
