Team Destiny, the all-female professional paintball squad that won a national championship over male teams last October, comes back home to compete in Huntington Beach this weekend.
After having competed across the country, Team Destiny locks and loads into Friday through Sunday's 2014 Surf City Open in Huntington Beach, where they will once again be led by captain Kat Secor.
Team Destiny has competed in seven out of 11 paintball tournaments that have taken place in the Huntington Beach Pier area, according to Secor.
Actually, her team will be split in two this weekend, as an East Coast squad competes at the all-female Indian River Paintball tourney in Perry, Georgia. Team owner and rostered player Bea Paxson will manage her players there.
Secor hopes the bi-coastal events will inspire more women to pick up paintball guns and--who knows?--try out for roster spots on Team Destiny. Learn more at DestinyPaintball.com.
