In October 2020, Missouri Trapshooters Association held their, postponed, State Trapshooting competition from the 2019-2020 school year. Kearney Trapshooting Club took three teams to Linn Creek, MO to compete against 394 teams for the state championship.
Team 1: Hayden George-Duncan, Savannah Peisert, Nathan Pratt, Joey Sempek, Hunter Wheeler (State Champion Team)
Team 2: Kale Campbell, Ethan Cox, Jordan Hoessel, Jenner Swindler, Kolben Swindler
Team 3: Jordan Robertson, Jossie Taylor,
Team 2 and Team 3 had a good showing setting some personal records. Some of these shooters were attending the state championship for the first time, and it was great to see their skills showcased during the competition.
Team 1 was full of seasoned state shooters with each shooter previously earning a state championship in another competition. At this year’s state competition, as a team, they shot 482 birds out of 500. That is an average of 96/100 birds hit by each shooter.
Joey Sempek shot 99/100 to earn him the 2nd place state trophy of all Juniors in the state competition.
Out of the other 394 teams that competed, the 482/500 was the best high school team score making KHS’s Team One State Champions!
