MEQUON, Wis. – Concordia University Wisconsin Director of Athletics Dr. Rob Barnhill has announced the addition of competitive trap and skeet shooting teams (men and women), which are new club sports for the school and will begin immediately.
The growth of the sport over the last 10 years culminated with a 2017 national competition, which featured 821 students from 76 schools across the United States. This is double the number of students who participated four years ago. The majority of the participants shoot three or more events and those who shoot in all six disciplines then can qualify for the High Overall Awards. Last year, nearly 96 percent of students participated in American Trap, the tournament’s top event. The biggest year-on-year growth was the 24 percent jump in the number of registered events by these students.
