PullUSA: How did you get involved in shooting sports? Sierra McDonald: I started in a 4-H shooting club in Fulton County where I completed the Winchester NRA shot- gun qualification in less than a year. Then I went to the Franklin County Trap League where I still shoot yearly. And now our school started to par- ticipate in the USA High School Clay Target League. PullUSA: What do you like most about the League and being a part of your team? McDonald: Being able to do this sport that I love with my friends from school. PullUSA: What other activities have you taken part in outside of the League? McDonald: I also run track and cross-country. Love to hunt. THE LEAD ON T HE L INE What began in 4-H has blossomed into a full-blown love of hunting and shooting sports for Sierra McDonald.
