Led by Colton Woods, the East Clinton High School Clay Target Club had a busy Spring and Summer competing in the areas of skeet, trap and 5-stand as part of the Ohio State High School Clay Target League.
Woods earned top individual honors in the conference along with top skeet honors in the conference and top honors for skeet and trap at the state shoot.
The season started in April and concluded in May. Each member had to complete 10 rounds of either skeet, trap or 5 -stand with scores summited electronically. All scores were then calculated at the end of the season to determine conference standings. Skeet and trap compete on a state level; 5-stand competes on a national level.
This is the first year for 5-stand in this league and East Clinton was the only Ohio School.
