The Wessington Springs High School Clay Target League team’s first trip to the state shoot  was a memorable one, with five from the ten-member team competing last weekend in Aberdeen, SD.

The team as a whole came in 18th place in their division and Brock Stevens, who will be a WSHS junior next school year, took home the top prize, first place in the entire division. 

Stevens shot 91/100 which earned him first place as well as his “25 badge” for a perfect score during one round. Bryce Kopfmann shot 87/100 for sixth; Carter Gaikowski and Austin Schimke each shot 82/100 tying for 24th place and Luke Knipfer shot 46/100 for 65th place.

Coaches Jason Weber and Dawn Lake were working and out of town so Kimball Clay Target League coach Scott Powers served as coach during competition.
