CoEd Varsity Trap Shooting
Game Summaries & Headlines.
The Armada Trap Team traveled to Mason, Michigan to compete in the Michigan High School Trap Shooting League State Championships.
High School Trap Shooting has continued to grow exponentially over the last few years. Armada created a Trap Team in 2016 from a vision coach Cliff Urbanek had, to bring a passion of his to the high school ranks. In its first year, the coed team, whose home field is B&BS Gun Club, had approximately 20 members and were coached by Urbanek with the help of club members and dads. In 2017 middle school students were included and the team has grown to its current size of over 60 team members.
On Saturday, June 15th, the team competed in the state championships in Mason Michigan. The first year they attended in 2016 there were 7 teams that competed. This Saturday, there were 60 teams competing and some traveled from the upper peninsula to be a part of the state tournament.
After shooting two rounds where each participant shoots at 50 targets each round, the total number hits for the 100 targets are recorded and added up as a team. Armada came out oun top this year winning the state championship. It has been the hard work of Urbanek and his assistant coaches as well as the dedication of the student athletes who shoot twice a week during the regular season, that gave them the opportunity to finish on the top of the 60 team field.
