SPORTS Trapshooters Second In State

Carlson Wins Title In Novice Division; National Tourney Next

The Britton-Hecla/ Langford High School trapshooting team took second place honors at the Class 1A state tournament held in Aberdeen on Saturday.

A total of 35 high school teams featuring nearly 700 student-athletes competed in the Class 1A and 2A competitions, and nearly 2,000 spectators attended from across the state.

“We were extremely pleased with the way we shot in the state meet,” said Coach Ray Effling. “It was a total team effort, and I think it was the best we’ve shot all season. You want to peak at the end of the year, and we did. Now we’re hoping to keep it going at the national meet. I’m just really happy for the kids and the coaches.”
