Trap team starts strong

Chad Smith

To say the Kingsland trap team kicked off the fall season would be an understatement. The Knights are on top of Class A-Conference 7 after week one with a score of 1,648.

The Knights are 214.5 birds ahead of second-place Richfield High School – Academy of Holy Angels (1,433.5) in the eight-team conference.

Patrick Junge and Nathan Lund were the top Kingsland scorers, each finishing one bird shy of a perfect round at 49. Both of them had perfect first-round scores of 25, while each was one shy of a perfect round two at 24. But they weren’t the only Kingsland shooters to score well.

Carson Paul and Nolan Fetterly each scored a 48. Fetterly had a perfect first round of 25. Zach Hauser was next with a 47, while Emily Miner led the female shooters with a 47. Luke Howard and Bradley Grabau each hit 44 targets. Acelee Kohn hit 43 targets, Brett Musel added 41, while Tristan Aarsvold and Trent Schwinefus each scored a 38. Kaden Dohlman hit 37 birds and Caitlin Miner added 35.

Junge and Lund wound up in a three-way tie (with Aidan Haller, Coon Rapids) in the Class A, Conference 7 Boys’ Top Ten List at 24.50. Fetterly is in a four-way tie for fourth at 24.00. Hauser is in a five-way tie for eighth place with a score of 23.50.

Emily Miner sits in a tie (Allana Carlson, Proctor) on top of the Class A, Conference 7 Girls’ Top Ten Standings with a score of 23.00.

This is week two of the five-week regular season schedule.
