Wendy Mair, For The Park Record

Sixteen youth from the Heber Valley Trap & Skeet Club’s Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) Team participated in the SCTP State Championship on Saturday, June 2, at the Lee Kay Center in Salt Lake City. Despite grueling temperatures near one hundred degrees, all three of the five-person squads placed in their respective divisions while their families and friends cheered them on in the oppressive heat.

The Senior Varsity (SV) squad placed first in its division (and overall) with an impressive score of 928 out of 1,000 targets a solid 10-target lead over second place. The Junior Varsity (JV) squad placed third in its division (and sixth overall) with a score of 850. The Entry Level squad took second place with a score of 683.

Connor Williams of Park City (SV) tied for second place overall with a score of 192/200 and Kaylee Phillips of Wallsburg (SV) placed fourth overall and was the High Lady for the third year in a row with a score of 188/200. Austin Earnshaw of Heber came in third place in his division (Intermediate-Advanced) with a score of 180/200.

Also finishing in the top ten of their divisions were Clay Glazier of Heber (SV), 187/200, Jake Cowan of Oakley (SV), 184/200, Harley Georgi of Kamas (JV), 180/200, Tate Motely of Heber (JV), 168/200, Garrison Shaw of Heber (JV), 163/200, Brandon Bown of Midway (Entry), 159/200, Dillon Riding of Midway (Entry), 157/200, and Ryndi Watts of Heber (Entry), 150/200.

All participants gave their very best and did some excellent shooting. The club is excited to have so many talented young shooters who will continue to participate on the team as they advance their trapshooting skills in the months and years ahead.
