Central Lakes College’s trap shooting team won its conference after competing in the USA College Clay Target League’s six-week season. The team also recently finished the season placing third at nationals.

The 15-member co-ed team is celebrating its most successful season since beginning competition in 2017. This is the first time that CLC has earned the conference championship, and the program looks to build upon this season’s success in subsequent years.

After taking first place at its conference, the CLC team was invited to participate in the national tournament, which took place from Nov. 1–6, with team members each shooting 100 clay targets at Lakeshore Conservation Club and then coaches inputting scores online.

Team members Kylie Wolkenhauer of Pequot Lakes and Isaac Malone each scored a 97 out of 100, which earned Wolkenhauer the High Gun for all females at Nationals and tied both her and Malone for the second-highest score of the tournament. Team member Grace Caouette wrapped up her first season of competitive trapshooting in spectacular fashion earning first place in the tournament’s novice category.

Coaches are Mike Hammer, Erich Heppner, Robb Kolodziej, Mark Robideaux, Nikki Shoutz and Steven Weagel.
