All Southwest Tech students are eligible to participate in the Trap Shooting Team
Southwest Tech has completed the first two seasons of the Trapshooting Team. The team was made up of 28 members during the 2017/2018 season and the team placed third in division 3 at the collegiate nationals in Ohio. This was a big step forward for the team and they look to add to the successes during the 2018/2019 season as they head into a new era. The team has been invited to join the Minnesota Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC) for the fall of 2018. This will be a lettering collegiate sport through the conference and we will compete against 12 other regional two-year colleges. The team’s home club is the Muscoda Sportsman’s Club in Muscoda, WI and competes on Wednesday evenings along with face-to-face competitions. If you are interested in joining the team, please fill out the “Recruit Me” form on the website.
