Cabot’s Kylee Sims starting trapshooting competitively just two years ago, but last week signed on to be a part of the first shooting team in the history of Lyon College.

Sims has enjoyed hunting for years, but quickly found out she has a lot of skill at shooting the clay as well.

“It takes a lot of commitment and dedication to be a good shooter, and Kylee has that,” said Cabot shooting coach Mary Martishaw. “She has the patience you need. You can’t get rattled when you miss one, and she just moves on to the next.”

Sims has big plans for college outside of trapshooting as well. She is looking at the pre-med and biology programs at Lyon. Arkansas State University and the University of Central Arkansas were in the mix for a while, but Lyon eventually won out.

“They’ve got a really good pre-med program and they’ve got a high success rate coming out of their program,” said Sims. “It will also be pretty fun to be a part of their first shooting team.”
