The Fort Hays State Shooting Team hosted the 6th annual Open Collegiate Clay Target Competition last weekend inviting 12 other collegiate shooting teams.

The Hays City Sportsman’s Club hosted over 80 college shooting team members.

The meet was a 400-shot event featuring wobble trap, American trap, trap doubles, American skeet, and skeet doubles.

“This is our 2nd shoot of the year, so the kids are all getting back into the swing of things,” said Duane Shepherd, head coach. “The team will do just fine this year. We have a good mix of veterans and a solid group of freshman. All the way through, this is a good bunch of kids and I expect them to perform at a high level.”

The first shooting meet of the year for FHSU took place at Wichita State University, where the team was a runner-up. The team heads into this season with two back-to-back national championships under its belt.
