Kat Secor and Her Paintball Team Destiny are Locked and Loaded for Huntington Beach Meet
And now you can watch her unload on maggots in person!
Team Destiny is among the 100 teams from all over the globe competing in the National Professional Paintball League's 11th annual Surf City USA Open today through Sunday at Huntington Beach Pier Plaza.
The tournament, which starts in Surf City and continues throughout North America before reaching Las Vegas, has teams of seven assassins competing in six different divisions: Professional, D1-Semi Pro, D2-Amature, D3-Rookie, D4-Novice and Young Guns.
The game is actually like capture the flag that you played in your neighborhood, only the "tag, you're dead" leaves a stain. Whoever can grab the opposing team's flag without getting shot is the winner of each heat.
Secor, whose team will be playing in Division 4, is not only a player, she's an ambassador for bringing more women into the sport. Nothing is more empowering than blasting a guy before he blasts you, she'd be the first to tell you. Oh, yeah, she already did here:
