Jenna Leggett shoots her first 25 straight targets at fish and game club

In late September, 14-year-old Jenna Leggett, shot her first 25 straight targets at the Courtenay and District Fish & Game shotgun venue.

Leggett started shooting at the 2013 NSSA Youth Skeet Camp held at Courtenay Fish & Game, and has progressed steadily since then.  While she practises weekly at the club under the mentorship of many regular shooters, she also receives coaching from the club skeet instructors, especially Lisa Cunningham, 2015 Ladies’ Canadian Skeet Champion.

Leggett has competed at various registered NSSA shoots on the Island in 20, 28, and .410 gauges, and has frequently won her class.

At the recent ISA Championships in Victoria at the SVI Rangers, Leggett won the 20 gauge C Class, and became the ISA Junior Champion.  She finished one target behind Cunningham, who won the Ladies’ Overall Championship.
