Kinsey Duzan

PERSONAL PROFILE

Kinsey is a 16-year-old amateur clay target sport athlete from Ohio. She started shooting SCTP / ATA / AIM American Trap, Handicaps, and Doubles competitively at the age of 13 and has developed a passion for the sport and the people associated with it. She is active in a wide range of extracurricular activities, but she is truly passionate about continuous improvement, learning new shooting disciplines, and positively promoting the sport. She achieved her 2022 goal by being named to the All-Ohio State Trapshooting Team, and her 2023 goals by being named to the 2024 ATA All-American Sub-Jr Team (2nd ranked Sub-Junior Lady), being named to the 2024 All-Ohio State Trapshooting Team, by winning two SCTP National Titles, and by being named the 2023 Ohio State ATA AIM High All-Around Youth Champion.  She continues to polish her skills in American trap, sporting clays, skeet, and bunker (Olympic / international) trap, and plans to participate in SCTP and USA Shooting training camps throughout 2023. Kinsey is 100% committed to clay shooting sports and when the weather in Ohio is not conducive to breaking targets, she can be found at the gym or in her basement working to stay in shape by pointing her gun at targets on the wall.
