RC Falcons Varsity Trap Team Places 3rd at State! The Falcons had nine passionate shooters represent the Riley County High School Trap Team at the Kansas High School Clay Target League State 1A Tournament on June 19th. Athletes are classified as novice, junior varsity, or varsity based on their regular season average. High gun awards are given to the top three males and females in each division. Team recognition is given to teams in each division, yet overall team awards are decided by the top five shooters of the day regardless of classification. As season scores typically improve as the season progresses, it’s not unusual to have top scores come from junior varsity shooters. State competition is best out of 100 targets, 2 rounds of 50. Riley County’s top five shooters at the tournament were varsity males: Ayden Bath-95, Jared Wilt-91, Bryce Beckman-91 including a “25 straight”, Cody Pfaff-88, and Zak Zeller-83. Their combined score of 449 earned them 3rd Place in the Varsity team division and 8th place team overall. There were 43 teams/schools represented at the 1A State Tournament and 449 individual shooters. Great job to these young men and women! Go Falcons!

Congratulations to April’s Student of the Month, Tyler Fief. Tyler, a Senior, has shown a huge improvement during his last quarter of high school. All of this has been done working a part time job for the Riley Café. After high school, Tyler will be serving our country after he enlisted in the Army in September. Ms. Hopson said it best, “I am incredibly proud of Tyler for realizing where he needs to improve and making those adjustments.” A lesson we can all respect and possibly implement in our own lives. Go Falcons!
