Trapshooting event draws large crowd in first yearFennimore -
By all accounts, the first-ever High School Invitational Trapshoot, hosted by Southwest Wisconsin Technical College, was a success. The event was held at the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club on May 7 and it drew 200 competitors from 23 K-12 schools in western Wisconsin. “I think it went well,” said Matt Schneider, one of the organizers of the event, and advisor at Southwest Tech. Schneider and Dan Imhoff, executive director of facilities, safety and security, are co-coaches of the Southwest Tech Clay Target Team. They are also the state directors of the Wisconsin State High School Clay Target League.
The turnout on Saturday is yet another indication of the growth of the sport over the last 5-7 years. “High school trapshooting in Wisconsin is huge,” said Schneider, noting that a majority of the 30 high schools in Southwest Tech’s district field a competitive team.
The high school teams compete virtually, so this event provided a great opportunity for the young athletes to network, in person, with their peers. “I saw a lot of teams interacting and mingling,” noted Schneider.
Schneider indicated the event was well received by those in attendance, both the competitors and their guests. Throughout the day, attendees had the opportunity to visit the Southwest Tech Mobile Ag Trailer and Virtual Welder. Food was also available for purchase.
