The Minnesota State High School League Clay Target Trap Shooting Championship is tomorrow at the Minneapolis Gun Club in Prior Lake.  40 teams have qualified including Owatonna, Red Wing, Albert Lea and John Marshall from the Big Nine.

Actually there are different conferences set up for trap.  Also from the KDHL listening area are Tri-City United, United South Central, Jordan, New Prague, Prior Lake, Lakeville South, Alden-Conger.

Northfield Head Coach Pete Mergens told KDHL AM Minnesota listeners his team missed qualifying for state by two birds.

Also joining our broadcast in Northfield at the  Professional Pride Realty office were senior captains Sam Miller and Matthew Riehm, sophmore Patrick Mergens and freshmen Ava Miller and Jayden Schulz.

All the student athletes are competitors in other sports and told us Trap Shooting has helped in their other sports.  Most notably in the area of concentration.

So much of the sport is between the ears as they say, concentration and focus are the key.

You can listen to the program below:

Northfield was the last team to shoot Tuesday in Alexandria attempting to qualify for the MSHSL State Tournament.  7 Raiders have qualifyed for Nationals in Michigan in August.
