Jamestown S’Klallam shooter

A Native shooting starJaiden Grinnell, 17, clenched the top women’s score in International Skeet at the Miami Cup Skeet Championship in Miami, Fla. Feb. 8. She traveled to the Sunshine State with the United States National Shotgun Team.

This latest win marks one of many for Jaiden, an enrolled member of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and junior at Port Angeles High School. She has racked up enough medals to weigh her neck down, thanks to her solid shooting skills at skeet competitions across the United States, and abroad.

Four months prior to her win in Miami, she placed third in the open category at the USA Shooting Shotgun Fall Selection in Colorado Springs, Colo., Sept. 14–16. This secured her a spot on the USA team to compete at the 2009 World Shotgun Championships in Maribor, Slovenia this August. She placed first in the junior category at the event.
