Kyle Kanuah, a 13-year-old Smith Middle School student, took High Gun honors in the PenMar Trap Shooting League's 2016-17 season.
Kanuah hit 541 of 600 clay birds during the league's 12-week qualifying period.
He took up competitive trap shooting seriously a year ago. Kanuah shoots a Browning Citori 12-gauge over and under shotgun. It's a gun his father says is an antique by current trapshooting enthusiasts.
“It’s ancient, but one we could afford, “said Ed Kanuha, who also competes in the league.
