2013 National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships for Shotgun Showcase Sport’s Future


Now that the smoke has


cleared, we’re able to reveal this year’s batch of National Junior Olympic Shooting Champions (NJOSC) for Shotgun. The phrase carries a far more


literal meaning this year than in those past as forest fi res in Colo- rado couldn’t stop the annual event with more than 200 shot- gun athletes coming to the Inter- national Shotgun Range at Fort Carson June 15 – 21 to compete for Junior Olympic titles in Skeet, Trap and Double Trap. Also up for grabs were spots on the National Junior and Junior Olympic teams. Athletes fi nishing in the top-two of the NJOSC in each discipline receive automatic nomination to USA Shooting’s National Ju- nior Team and third through fi fth place earned berths on the new- ly-formed National Junior Olym- pic Squad. The week kicked off with


Men’s and Women’s Trap compe- tition as Ashley Carroll (Solvang,


Calif.) claimed the fi rst title of the week on the women’s side, her third straight major shotgun title after a pair of Selection Match victories. On the men’s side, T.J. Bayer


(College Station, Texas) is fast becoming a name to keep your eye. Showing multi-discipline expertise, Bayer captured the Men’s Trap and Double Trap titles at this year’s NJOSC. He fi nished second to Vincent Hancock (Ea- tonton, Ga.) in May at the Spring Selection Match. Bayer was injured on a hik- ing/climbing excursion to St. Peters Dome, a hiking trail in south Colorado Springs early in the week when he fell 10 feet and suffered injuries to both legs and scraped his face. He spent time in the emergency room and received 11 stitches to close a cut on his right leg. Despite the injury, Bayer


didn’t seem to pay much at- tention to it with his focus on


winning being the biggest pain remedy. “I think this sport is more


about the eyes,” said Bayer af Now that the smoke has cleared, we’re able to reveal this year’s batch of National Junior Olympic Shooting Champions (NJOSC) for Shotgun. Talk of a historic Junior Olym-


pic shotgun discipline sweep by Bayer made for a good storyline coming into skeet competition. But by the time the last clay had been dusted Friday, Bayer was nowhere to be found and fellow Texan Phillip Jungman (Caldwell, Texas) assumed his place atop the podium, a place he’s be- come very familiar with. Jungman earned a second


straight title while Dania Vizzi (Odessa, Fla.) earned her fi rst Junior Olympic title as the Na- tional Junior Olympic Shooting Championships (NJOSC) came to an end. Vizzi continued her hot shoot-


ing after establishing herself at the 2013 Spring Selection match where she made the open fi nal and fi nished fourth. Vizzi tied Hannah Houston (Columbia, Tenn.) in qualifying with 114 and was even with Houston going into the fi nal two stations in the wind- blown fi nal. Houston would drop four of the last fi ve targets while Vizzi missed just one to help se- cure the hard-fought victory.
