July 23—ImageTaylor McCoy a 16 years old young lady from Soperton and a junior this year at Treutlen High School recently competed at the 2013 Georgia Games in Atlanta where she won 3 gold medals and 1 silver. McCoy won gold in the Women’s Division Trap, the Women’s Division Skeet and the 15-18 Year Old Skeet. The silver medal was earned in the 15-18 Year Old Division Trap.

“ I started shooting in 4-H in the 7th grade with a BB-Gun and progressed to shooting a shotgun about a year and half ago. I shoot about four times a week.” McCoy said.

McCoy competed and placed 2nd in the district tournament in Sandersville and then went on to the state meet at Rock Eagle and came in 6th place competing against 800 boys and girls as a member of the Treutlen 4-H Club. She is also a member of the Gator Creek  Young Guns Travel Team in McRae.

“ I hope to do well next May at the Southeast Regional Junior Olympics Qualifier in Columbus for a chance to train in Colorado Springs, Colorado.” McCoy said.

“ We are very proud of Taylor and how she has done shooting at such a young age. We hope that she can take that beyond high school and into college and maybe into the Olympics. Her dad Clayton has been there every step of the way and put her in many competitions. We would also like to thank 4-H and Gator Creek.” Mom Karen McCoy said.
