Ridgewater College is offering a new competitive clay target (trapshooting) sport and will compete in the Minnesota College Athletic Conference (MCAC). It is open to both male and female participants on the Hutchinson and Willmar campuses.
As a member of MCAC, the student athletes will compete during a six-week season. Student athletes who have earned their firearms safety certification will compete in a “virtual” trap shooting competition among MCAC member colleges.
Competitions will be conducted at a local range in Hutchinson and Willmar with scores uploaded weekly to the league’s website. MCAC conferences are determined by team size, and True Team® scoring is used to maximize the number of student athlete scores that are used for the team score. The season culminates with the MCAC Trap Shooting Championship in mid-October at the Grand Rapids Gun Club.
Student athletes will meet with their coaches the first week of school in August.
