Andale’s Trap Shooting Team

Trap shooting is a fun and competitive sport! Check out what Andale’s Trap Shooting Team is up to.
Spring season
Spring season

Andale recently started a trap shooting team, it consists of  25 shooters and multiple adult leaders. The AHS Trap Shooting Team is mostly run and organized by Jay Schroeder, an Andale community member. Practice takes place every weekend, and is approximately an hour in length. When arriving at practice each team member is assigned to a group, typically there are two groups going at one time. Locations vary, sometimes at Colwich but also locations such as Cheney, KS.

When at Trap Shooting practice there are five buckets aligned in a semi circle. Each team member shoots five rounds at each station, with a total of five stations. Team members get one shot which then follows with another team member next to them shooting next. This cycle repeats until everyone has shot five times at which point you rotate to the next station. At the end of each round adult leaders announce the shooting scores which is out of 25. To put this into perspective a realistic score would be 3 out of 5.

When you sign up to be apart of the AHS Trap Shooting Team most of the cost is associated with the cost of shells. Average shell box costs are approximately $20 for 25 rounds. Each team member has to choose whether they want to shoot 12 or 20 gauge’s any other gauge team members must provide their own shells with your own gun.

Andale’s Trap Shooting team also competes in state towards the end of the season which is in October.

Trap shooting is the oldest shotgun sport in America. It was invented in the late eighteenth century. Before clay pigeons they used to use glass balls as targets but in 1880 the clay pigeon was invented. The clay pigeon has massively effected the sport, they have a smooth glide and its pretty easy to tell if you hit it.

Noah Reichenberger, Andale HS - Renwick Review
Hi, my name is Noah, outside of school my favorite hobby is riding dirt bikes. One thing I appreciate about Renwick is the community, it's a great one and there's no others like it. This is my first year of Renwick Review. One person who inspires me is Haiden Deegan, he went from a rookie making mistakes, to being at the top of the board in supercross!
