Pequot Lakes' David Schroeder finished 69th while Pine River-Backus' Shane Sepin finished 85th at the first Minnesota State High School League State Clay Target tournament on Saturday, June 14, at the Minneapolis Gun Club in Prior Lake.

Schroeder, a freshman, shot 86 out of 100 targets.

"He really performed well for a freshman," said Stephen Weagel. "David kept improving as the year went, and had the highest team average. It was a big accomplishment for David to be among the top 104 (state qualifiers) out 6,100 kids in his first year of shooting trap. The state tournament was a good experience for David for the future."

Weagel added that all the shooters at state performed well considering the challenging weather conditions of driving rain and heavy winds.

Sepin, a senior, made 81 targets from a round of 100.

"Shane had a great year of shooting and we are happy that he qualified for state," said PR-B coach Molly Keefe. "Shane never missed a week of trap and his hard work and dedication paid off. This was his third year shooting, and he was a great leader for our team."

The top individual was Gust Lundeen of Dassel-Cokato, who had a 99, while Colton Sherman of Brandon-Evansville, Hunter Hedtke of Monticello, Jona Friesen of Detroit Lakes and Tommy Mavencamp of St. Michael-Albertville tied for second with 98.
