Hancock senior Tory Schmidgall and junior Tyler Timmerman are in a three-way tie for second place in the conference (Class 1A - Conference 5) after two weeks of competition for the Hancock trapshooting team. The two are tied with Jordan Langheinrich of Houston with a season average of 22.5 target hits per 25 round.
Schmidgall recorded his first 25-straight round in week two. It was the team’s second 25-straight round this season as Timmerman had the first perfect round in week one.
“We hit 30 more birds from reserve week to week one and 49 more birds from week one to week two,” Hancock coach Bruce Malo said. “The newest shooters are seeing the biggest increases. That’s what I’m most proud of.”
As a team, Hancock sits in fifth behind Providence Academy, Rothsay, Houston and Norman County East.
Junior Gideon Joos is tied for 12th overall in the conference with a season average of 21-of-25 targets hit per round. Senior Harrison Zeltwanger is also in the top 25, averaging 19.75 targets hit per 25-round.
