Date of birth:



Wooster, Arkansas

Kayle began shooting at eight years old with her dad, an avid sporting clay shooter. She began her target career in sporting clays where she made the open All-American Team at just 12 years old. The following year, she attended a Junior Olympic Development Camp in Colorado Springs, Colorado and decided to take up international trap.

In 2007, Kayle was selected for the Shotgun Junior Olympic Team and later that year won the bronze medal in the National Junior Olympic Championships. Since then, she has won several national and international medals, set national and international records, and is currently has her sights set on the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

At just 28 years old, Kayle has a 20-year shooting career and has been on the USAS team since she was only 15. She enjoys flipping houses (she’s a realtor), hunting, the beach, and working her two dogs. Making an Olympic Team has been a dream since she started shooting; fun fact, the laurel wreath translates to the meaning of her name.
