Five Longhorns And A Coyote On The National Stage In Michigan

Kimball Longhorns trap team members and a travel partner from Potter-Dix are competing this week at Nationals in Mason, Mich.

The Longhorns are Justin Klosterman, Nolan Cook, James McGinnis, Kambree Hottell and Cameron McGinnis.

Representing Coyote Nation is Dawsen Monheiser.

Brittany Cook, one of the Longhorn coaches, told the Observer that Thursday, July 7, is a practice day for the Panhandle delegation.

Then it's down to business.

The Longhorns will shoot as a team Friday. Next, on Saturday, they'll shoot individually along with Monheiser. The championship rounds are Sunday.

"We will know the night of the ninth (Saturday) if any of the kids made it to the championship rounds, or if our team made it," Cook said.

All shooting at Nationals will be out of 100 rounds. The team score will be out of 500 – 100 per teammate.

A reverse run is used to break ties. The count begins with the last shot of competition back to the first missed clay.

Also qualifying for Nationals but unable to attend are Trenton Hottell, Charlotte Hargreaves, Grace Anderson, Aaron Gillming and Jarrett Schutz.

Schutz was awarded All-State trap honors due to his outstanding season average of 20.3 out of a perfect score of 25.
