Falcons take first place at weekend conference trap shooting meet
space
Antigo area youth trap shooters had a chance to demonstrate their skills against other Northern Wisconsin Clay Target Conference (North Central Division) competition this past weekend. Hosted at the Langlade County Trap Range, current site of the county’s massive lead reclamation undertaking, the Langlade County Falcons took top overall scoring honors en route to the state meet later this month.

“Overall, the shoot was a great success,” head coordinator of the Falcons Chris Lucas said after Saturday’s regional meet. “The weather was great and we didn’t have the winds everyone else in the area was having. We made a lot of money that will be going back into these children’s programs.”

On their way to the Wisconsin State Trap Tournament in Waukesha on June 28, the Falcons had a number of stand-out individual shooters in its ranks.

In the varsity-level, individual trap singles event, Langlade County’s Dennen Mattmiller tied for first place with Sam Kalata of the Crandon Cardinals with a score of 92 (out of 100). Dylan Dewey and Trent Karl also finished in the top five with scores of 85 and 84 respectively.

For the trap singles event at the junior varsity level, Adam Hilger was tied atop the leaderboard with Jaden Streu of Florence County, each having a score of 93.

The Falcons’ Jordan Marvin was alone on the top of trap singles’ list of leaders at the intermediate/advanced level, scoring 84, nipping second place Jason Brewer of Northland Pines’ finish of 81.

In the open class of trap singles meant exclusively for the young lady trap shooters of Wisconsin, Langlade County’s Breanna Tarras found herself in the top five, placing fourth overall with a score of 67. The bar was set by first place finisher Josie McHugh (Laona) and her mark of 92.

Casey Lucas and Hilger also took third and fourth place honors in the men’s open class event, shooting for scores of 37 and 36 (out of 50). Florence County’s Streu once again found himself in a first place finish with 47.

In team play, Langlade County finished first in all age levels of the trap singles competitions, edging rival Northland Pines in each of the three incremental classes. For the high team score overall, the Falcons also proceeded to take first place with a score of 547 out of a collective best of 650 possible, barely beating out Crandon (546) and Pines (541) once again.

With the conclusion of the season after the state meet next week, the Falcons trap team will have a little time off until resuming recruiting and team meets this coming January. With informational visits intended for the elementary, middle and high school levels, Langlade County is on the rise with its youth trap program.

“It was nice to see new faces out there this past weekend and the kids really had fun,” Lucas said. “We plan on visiting (Antigo area) schools to try and get children interested in the club. We can’t wait for our practices to resume in April.”
