Lake Edinboro Sportsman’s Club Junior Trapshooting program:

We had an outstanding season with great individual and team results during their competitive season. 35 youth participated in our Junior and Newbie shooter program in 2018.   Many of our youth recorded personal best scores during competitions and several recorded their first “25”, “50”, and “100” straight targets.  The capstone of the season was our youth’s success at the PA State Championships and SCTP National Championship event.  20 shooters participated at the PA State Championship.  The open squad of Chase Beck, Cyrus Gage, Garrett Hodak, Mitchell Humes and Vinnie Vittorio won the SCTP state title.   We took 7 youth to the SCTP National championships at Marengo, OH, where our open squad consisting of Hailley Ruhl, Josey Vittorio, Tanner Sliker, Vinnie Vittorio and Zack Yonkin finished in 22nd place. 

We are all looking forward to the 2019 season and hope to improve upon our successes of this year.  As our youth continue to develop their skills, we hope to have more participation at the National Championships while it is being held in Ohio.  It was an impressive event that every one of our youth should have the opportunity to compete.
