The McKenzie Shooting Sports Team competed on April 13 in Nashville at the 2019 Scholastic Clay Target Program Regional Shoot. The SCTP competition was team and individual based in which athletes had the opportunity to participate in the fun and challenging sports of Trap and Sporting Clays.
Sporting clays is a form of clay pigeon shooting, often described as “golf with a shotgun” because a typical course includes 10 to 15 different shooting stations laid out over natural terrain. The McKenzie Team brought home several awards for Sporting Clays. The Intermediate Team and the Varsity Teams both earned a second place award.
Individual awards for Sporting Clay were Carli Beeler second place Rookie and Brayden Boyd third place Rookie. Tanner Floyd won first in the Intermediate Division and Trey Bowers placed third.
Trap shooting is a specific form of clay target shooting. Trap shooting is a game of movement, action and split-second timing.
It requires the accuracy and skill to repeatedly aim, fire and break the 4-1/4 inch disc hurled through the air at a speed of 42 m.p.h. simulating the flight path of a bird fleeing a hunter. Logan Green took first place in the Varsity Division for the McKenzie Team.
