Lauren Burge Winners Podium

Lauren Burge walked away from the World Skeet Championship with the Lady High Overall (HOA) Champion title for Team Krieghoff. With a half dozen Lady HOA titles already under her belt, it’s clear that she has been putting in the work all year. Burge destroyed 447 out of 450 targets at the event, which also earned her a spot in the top 10 shooters overall.

After her big win, Burge said shooting alongside so many accomplished shooters made winning the championship “much more memorable.” And she isn’t stopping now, calling her champion title a “an honor and stepping stone towards my long term goal of an Open World Champion.” An ambitious shooter with big dreams, Burge said she plans to continue her pursuits in college, with her main goal to encourage other young shooters to compete in the shooting sports.
