ANOKA, Minnesota - June 10, 2021 - Team Federal shooters Lauren Mueller and Austin Jacob had remarkable showings at the 16th Annual U.S. Open Trapshooting Championships presented by The Amateur Trapshooting Association, winning a collective 13 first place trophies. The competition, consisting of 13 events, was held from June 2-6 at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, Illinois.

“We are extremely proud of the stellar performance from Lauren and Austin at this year’s U.S. Open Trapshooting Championships, and of all our Team Federal athletes,” said Federal Ammunition Vice President of Marketing Jason Nash. “Their accomplishments are a reflection of Federal’s dedication to its quality products and to the shooting sports.”

Mueller took home the Lady Division first-place trophy in eight events, including the U.S. Open High All Around Championship with a score of 380, and the U.S. Open High Overall Championship with a score of 946.

She also claimed the top spot in the White Flyer U.S. Open Doubles Championship, the U.S. Open Singles Championship, the Kubota Class Doubles Championship, the Federal Ammunition Prelim Handicap, the Little Egypt Handicap, and the Budweiser Singles, as well as grabbing the second place trophy in the NRA Class Singles Championship.

Jacob also won first place in the Overall Championship event and took home the Class AAA first place trophy in four events, including the U.S. Open Singles Championship, the Kubota Class Doubles Championship, the Red Bud Chamber of Commerce Doubles, and Trap and Field Singles. Jacob also received the second place trophy in the ATA Trapshooting HOF Handicap, the NRA Class Singles Championship, and the U.S. Open Doubles Championship.
