Trapshooting team sets sites on trip to state tournament

At Cedar Falls High School, the trap shooting season has just begun. This year, the trap shooting team is a fairly new group of kids, with 22 first year shooters.

Trap shooting is one of three major forms of clay pigeon shooting. “I got involved in trap shooting because I have been hunting my whole life, so it’s something I wanted to do,” junior Jared Meeker said.

Being pleased with the way that the season has started, coach David Grund said, “We have a great group of returning shooters who have seasons of competition targets shot. The coaching staff is happy with the way things are progressing so far, and we won the first meet we held.” With a season that only goes from March until the state meet on June 2, every shot counts, both during practice and at meets.

After winning their first meet, Cedar Falls trap shooting still has an entire season ahead of them to keep up the good work. “My hopes for this season are that we place in the top five at State, and that we win the majority of the meets,” junior Jacob Hunemuller said.  At this pace, the Tiger trapshooting team is sure to have a successful season.
