Sgt. 1st Class Brian Stoa of the U.S. Army Reserve competed at the Southwestern Grand, a large Amateur Trapshooting Association tournament held at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio, TX April 2-7. Competing against over 200 of the best trapshooters from all over the United States, Stoa trophied in three of the six events he competed in.

“Though we had winds of 20 miles per hour and faster, I ended my Sunday at the Southwest Grand on a high note. I won class doubles with a 92,” said Stoa. “I was in a carryover from Friday’s doubles, which I won as well. Then I followed that up with a 90 in handicap which, given the conditions, was good enough for Runner-up. My scores were good enough to put me in a shoot off for class High All Around, but after few rounds in shoot offs fatigue hit and I came in second. It was a great overall weekend!”

Sgt. 1st Class Brian Stoa serves as a Reserve Guidance Counselor and Recruiter for the U.S. Army Recruiting Command (USAREC). As an aerial target shooter, Stoa competes in multiple competitive shotgun disciplines, including Trap, Skeet, and Sporting Clays and has been a member of the Army Skeet Team and won events at the Armed Forces Skeet Championship among numerous other individual and team wins.
