Cogdell wins gold

Anchorage Daily NewsMarch 30, 2012 

Eagle River Olympic bronze medalist Corey Cogdell won a gold medal Friday in Tucson, Ariz., the first women's trap-shooting gold of the International Shooting Sports Federation World Cup season.

Cogdell, 25, needed to rally in the late stages of competition, surviving a five-person shoot-off to reach the final round, where she shot from the fifth position. She was nearly perfect in the final, dropping just one target to finish with 94 total targets.

"I've been training a lot and spending time in Tucson to prepare for this match," said Cogdell in a press release. "It was a great start for the year -- especially on American soil, and will propel my confidence headed into the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for shotgun in May."

Cogdell last won a World Cup medal in the 2010 ISSF World Cup in Acapulco.
