Already individual champions at USA Shooting’s Spring Selection Match in Tucson, Arizona, the duo of Ashley Carroll and Derek Haldeman earned another title as Mixed Team Trap gold medalists Monday to finish off the trap portion of competition from Tucson Trap and Skeet Club.
Carroll (Solvang, California) and the U.S. Army Marksmanship (USAMU) soldier-athlete Haldeman (Sunbury, Ohio) were second in Qualification behind the duo of Kayle Browning (Wooster, Arkansas) and Brian Burrows (Fallbrook, California), 141-140.
