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!
