Ross selected to all-American team
Nora Ross of Wilmore has been selected to the 2012 women’s all-American trapshooting team, the Amature Trapshooting Association (ATA) said last month in a press release.
At the Grand American last August, Ross won the top ladies’ trophies in two singles events, and during the Kentucky State Shoot, she led the women’s ranks in the championship singles, all-around and high-overall.
She earned additional points toward the all-American team selection while competing at tournaments in Ohio, including the state shoot.
To be considered for the all-American team, Ross had to meet a minimum target requirement, and she had to have competed in at least three states. Selection was made based on points the shooter accumulated while winning trophies and posting high scores at tournaments throughout the country during the 2011 ATA target year.
