Congratulations 2023 Hall Of Fame Inductees!

The PITA Hall of Fame committee has announced the 2022 nominees for induction into the Hall of Fame.

Jennifer Carter

Jennifer started her shooting career at the Cottage Grove-Eugene Sportsman Club in 1996 and joined the PITA in 1998. Thus began a fast, eight-year career – winning five Oregon titles, four Grand Pacific titles (2 of which were Ladies Champion of Champions), and four years on the All-Stars Ladies Teams.

By then she had attracted notice of the PITA Executive Committee and the OSTA Board. Since 2005, she has served in all capacities from director, secretary, vice president, and PITA president for a total of 7 years, and currently serving as past president, and Governance Committee chair. A more inclusive history of service could not be found.

Jennifer’s shooting record may be impressive but her years of service, however, places her at the highest level of “championship” qualifications.

We, therefore, welcome Jennifer as a member of the Class of 2023 PITA Hall of Fame.


Carl Cothren

Carl began his career in 1971. During his shooting career he collected 15 Washington titles, three out of state titles, twelve Grand Pacific titles, and ten years All Star placements. In 1979 and 2001, he was HAA at the Grand, and in 1997 the Doubles Champion. He also earned numerous runner-up and yardage titles at the Grand during his career.  In 2001, he won both the HAA and HOA at the Washington State shoot, as well as runner up, class, or category winner in all events.

Many of Carl’s friends describe him as a fierce competitor, a serious student of the sport, but off the line a gentleman always.

Therefore, we welcome Carl as a member of the Class of 2023 PITA Hall of Fame.
