Qualifying members of De Soto’s trap team participated in the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association’s state tournament held in Rome, Wis., this past Saturday.

Three of De Soto’s 18-member team competed at the varsity level with Lila Radde having the highest team finish, shooting a score of 91 of 100, solid enough to earn sixth place. Seven members competed at the junior varsity level and one member qualified at the novice level. All participants shot 100 rounds at the clay targets in four, 25-round groupings. More than 1,200 students from across the state participated in the single-day tournament. Wisconsin is second in the United States with the number of middle school/high school school trap programs and participants.

The De Soto team is coached by Caron Malin and Scott Kelly, with volunteers Luke Jandrin, Adam Malin and Pat Busteed.
