SH trap shooting teams
compete in tournament

Junior and senior high members of the Sloan-Hendrix trap shooting teams recently participated in the Arkansas Youth Shooting Sports Program (AYSSP) regional tournament in Lonoke.

The junior high teams competed on May 13.

"There were 15 of the students who competed," stated Coach Greg Foreman. "In the past we have had some problems with the students realizing that all five members of each trap shooting squad must attend in order for the scores to be at least compatible with the other schools. However, this year all of our team squads had every member present and were able to turn in a more competitive score.

"One of the teams came up just short of qualifying for the state tournament. Jacob Cagle was the most successful shooter busting 22 of the 25 skeet. The junior high team did very well, but I expect to see an improvement in the upcoming year."

The senior high teams competed on May 14.

Foreman stated that once again all of the members were present in order for the S-H team to be competitive.

Corey Henson hit 43 of the 50 skeet during the competition.

"Corey and the other members of the senior high team did very well," Foreman said. "We didn't qualify for the state in the senior high division, but the shooting sport has become so popular that every member of a squad must have excellent shooting scores.

"In fact, in our division, a squad would have had to hit at least 210 skeet out of 250 in order to qualify for the state level competition." Foreman said that he was very proud of all of the members of each squad for being present at the competition.

"Each year we are able to make improvements to our trap shooting team," he said. "It has become a very popular sport, and I am proud that Sloan-Hendrix is able to offer trap-shooting to our students."
