The Area 6 Championship was Duff’s first USPSA match in 2014. She won 6 of the 11 stages, and high overall in the women’s category at the match, which was held at South River Gun Club – her former home range. “I always enjoy being able to return home, and compete with friends on a familiar range.”

Duff saw this early match as an opportunity to develop her strategy and training regime for the rest of the season. “This match gave me a good idea of what I need to focus on through the season, to better prepare for the ISPC World Shoot this year in October,” stated Duff. “It’s always good to have matches that test you, and allow you to hone skills for the upcoming major championships.”
