Recap of season speaks to highs, lows of competition
Fifty-two members of the Crooked Creek Trap Team have completed their season for 2021-2022, finishing with flying colors.
Though there were no medals at the state championship in Doniphan April 24, the junior and senior teams had their own highlights with the juniors winning runner-up five weeks in a row and two members of the senior team each receiving $500 scholarships.
“Throughout the six weeks of competition we had several kids win awards and increase their personal best scores and just get better over the course of the season,” said coach and organizer of the Crooked Creek Trap Team Katie Scott. “That’s our goal and we were excited to see that happen.”
The junior team shot its way to second place for five consecutive weeks during the six weeks of conference shooting competitions.
“I would say that particular group of shooters have shot (together) for a couple of years,” Scott analyzed. “So, they had a really good rhythm. They just kind of worked well together because part of trap shooting is shooting with a squad of five people and getting a rhythm going and being comfortable shooting with each other.”
