HOLLEY – Three members of the Holley High School clay target shooting team travelled to Mason, Mich. from July 11-15 to compete in the USA High School Clay Target League National Championships.
Bradley Kingdollar, Tristan McFadden and Ethan Waldron were invited based on their shooting averages throughout the spring season.
The three boys participated in the individual portion of the competition. Brad Kingdollar hit 93 out of 100 birds to rank #459 out of more than 1,200 kids competing. Ethan Waldron hit 92 targets to place #568 and Tristan McFadden hit 82 targets. The score needed to make the finals was 94.
The atmosphere at the event was one of sportsmanship and respect. The competitors handled themselves professionally and enjoyed meeting kids from across the country who share their passion of trapshooting. Trapshooting is the safest and fast growing high school sport. To date, there have been no injuries – no concussions and no broken bones.
