Mikie Hoffmann placed first in two categories at the Washington Sporting Clay State Shoot on June 25 in Olympia.

He had winning scores in both the AA class and juniors events at the competition. He also tied for first in the 20 Gauge AA class, and tied for 10th overall.

Hoffmann won an entry into The Top Gun shoot at Mount Vernon in August and a two-hour lesson with a coach from Team USA.

Hoffmann continues his climb toward a master shooter rank in the sporting clay world, gaining another ten punches out of the sixteen at the event.

In early June, Hoffmann gained the two punches required to move him from A class to AA class at an event in Tunica, Miss.

He almost made his goal of becoming a master shooter by the time he graduated from Vashon High School. However, he has a good chance of attaining that goal in August at the Zone 7 shoot in Idaho and Top Gun shoot in Mount Vernon.
