The trap shooting teams were very successful this year. Many freshmen joined both teams and became good shooters. At the first trap shoot competition, many of the team members shot the targets consistently. Out of 25 most of the members hit in the 20 range. The competition was a good way to start the season. The teams continued to shoot well in competitions and at practice. Both A and B teams did well at the Area Trap Shoot. Their shooting had earned the teams a spot in the District Trap Shooting. It has been a few years since Audrain Co. FFA has been to District Trap Shooting. At districts out of 14 teams, the Audrain Co. FFA Trap Teams placed 7th. Overall it was a great year for both trap teams.  A special thanks goes to Scott Sims for all his help and hard work in coaching the teams!
