DONIPHAN, Neb. – You might think Payton DeTavernier, like many people, might be nervous entering a shoot-off for the Cornhusker Cup. You’d be wrong.

The Papillion-La Vista junior shot a 72 in the handicap Saturday, then won a shoot-off to become the first girl to win the Cornhusker Trapshoot.

“I stayed content,” she said about her mind-set entering the shoot-off. “I was already there. I just needed a bigger accomplishment to win.

“I don’t get nervous or anxious,” she said. “I’ve never been all nervous and shaky.”

DeTavernier, who shot a 75 Friday to combine for a two-day 147 score, broke 39 targets in the shoot-off to defeat Omaha Creighton Prep’s Alex Papa, who broke 37.

This year’s champion has competed in the Cornhusker since the seventh grade, and she won the junior high title here in the eighth grade. She had the high girls’ score in the 2018 Cornhusker Trapshoot. She was also on the 2019 winning high school team, and had the girls’ top handicap score.

Claybuster 4-H won the 4-H team title, Omaha Marian Blue won the girls’ team title, and Jade Chapman of Papillion-La Vista won the girls’ high score.

The three-day event drew 830 junior high and 1,576 senior high shooters.

Results from Saturday’s senior high competition are:
