Biography:

Ryann Phillips was introduced to the sport of shooting in the 3rd grade through a Gail, Texas, 4H program. She was intrigued by the sport because it was not a team event, and she didn’t have to worry about the expectations of others.

Ryann shot American trap, skeet, and sporting clays at the beginning of her shotgun career. In 2018 she began shooting international trap and quickly excelled. That same year she won her age division at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo and received an invite to USA Shooting’s National Junior Olympic Championships.

Since her first victory, Ryann has represented Team USA all over the world at competitions. She is grateful for where her career has taken her and appreciates that there is so much more to the world than her “tiny six-man football team town”.

She is currently a student at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi where she is studying Communications with a minor in women gender and sexual studies.

Ryann most recently qualified for her first Olympic Games and will be making her debut at Paris 2024.
