“I’m ab­so­lutely thrilled to come away with the win this week­end,” she said. “The con­di­tions were re­ally tough and the com­pe­ti­tion was su­perb, the girls shot some bril­liant scores.” Re­nae’s com­pe­ti­tion year in­cluded achiev­ing a long-term goal to win the FITASC Ladies World Cham­pi­onship, and wins at Com­mon­wealth, Ocea­nia and na­tional level. “It was a life-long goal to win the FITASC World Ti­tle, and to cap off the year with the Field & Game ti­tle is a dream come true,” Re­nae said. “You had to knuckle down on the Sat­ur­day in tough con­di­tions and do the best you could; I’ve shot in some pretty bad con­di­tions be­fore but it is right up there. “If you re­lied on the tar­get the pre­vi­ous shooter got, you were go­ing to be caught off guard; I called pull and just went with what­ever came out.”
