To be a good trapshooter, Jack Garbolino-Mojica says it is helpful to stay focused yet relaxed as clay targets that fly some 40 miles an hour are tracked and then fired at with a shotgun. He speaks with authority. He won the Pacific International Trapshooting Association's junior singles championship this year and in 2011. The 16-year-old Woodcreek High junior, who has been trapshooting since he was 10, will compete for his high school team for a third season this spring. Today, he shares three aspects of the sport he enjoys:

1. Friends and people I'm with are really supportive, even though trapshooting is highly competitive.

2. Being able to rank in the state and nation and have colleges consider you for a scholarship.

3. The sport is a gateway to the Olympic Games, and it can help you get on a junior national or adult national shooting team.
