Concordia Junior/Senior High School Trap Club Competes at State Tournament
This past weekend was a big one for the Concordia Junior/Senior High School Trap Club as they traveled to Sedgwick to compete in the Kansas State High School Clay Target League's 2022 State Tournament.
Concordia finished in 13th place out of 34 teams and had five students receive All-State recognition.
Over 1,200 students from 92 teams from across the state participated in the tournament. The tournament is the only event during the year that all league participants are invited to attend and compete at the same venue. Individuals compete within their assigned shooting skill classification based on their year-end season average. Teams use their top five member's scores from any classification for their team score.
In the varsity competition, Dakota Brockman led the team with a 95. Ryan Boden finished with a score of 93. Collin Bennett turned in a score of 92. Grant Robinson had a score of 91, while Kaden Novak had a score of 90.
Head Coach Todd Robinson thought his kids did a good job standing out against some tough competition.
Concordia had five individuals earn All-State recognition this season. They are Bradyn Wachsnicht, Isaiah Steffen, McKenzie Widen, Ryan Boden and Collin Bennett.
At the state tournament, Boden and Bennett both shot a perfect round of 25.
Moyra Barnes, competing in the female junior varsity competition, also shot a perfect round of 25 at the state tournament. It was her first 25 of her career.
The Concordia Junior/Senior High School Trap Shooting Club graduates seven seniors this year. The graduating seniors are Luke Anderson, Keghun Avery, Collin Bennett, Dale Deneault, Riley McMillan, Isaiah Steffen and McKenzie Widen.
McMillan and Widen, along with Bradyn Wachsnicht, brought home regular season conference awards this year.
The Concordia Junior/Senior High School Trap Shooting Club is an extracurricular co-ed and adaptive activity for students in grades 7 through 12. The organization's priorities are safety, fun, and marksmanship.
