Doane University (Nebraska) can now call one of its students a national shotgun champion. Payton DeTavernier, a member of the college shotgun team, claimed the top spot the 2022 ACUI Collegiate Clay Targets National Championships in San Antonio, Texas. The Federal Ammunition sponsored shooter won the women’s Doubles Trap division and also claimed the Combined American Trap events Overall title.

“This championship win was something I really wanted and I couldn’t be happier,” said DeTavernier, who shot Federal Top Gun loads at Nationals. For upcoming ATA competitions and for practice purposes, DeTavernier said she will switch to the new Federal High Over All loads. "I love these new HOA loads because they are a premium load that shoots the same every time,” she said. 

In her two individual national championships in the women's divisions, DeTavernier posted a score of 99 in Doubles American Trap to win Category 2. In Combined American Trap events, DeTavernier had a combined score of 196 to claim the overall title. Final match results revealed that she placed 14th overall in the women's division with a total High Overall (HOA) score of 514. Only 150 women's shooters hit at least 200 targets to make the standings board.

“I have worked extremely hard to accomplish this,” says DeTavernier, “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.”
