New Hampton’s Nick TeKippe fires a shot during a meet held earlier this month at the Fredericksburg Sportsman’s Club in Boyd.

Trapshooters learn the ‘240s lesson’

Osage hands New Hampton rare loss, but Chickasaws post plenty of great scores

For the first time all spring, the New Hampton trapshooting team lost a meet to someone other than Waverly-Shell Rock. 

Osage 1 came away victorious on Saturday at Fredericksburg Sportsman’s Club, defeating runner-up New Hampton Red 240-239.

“It’s getting to the time of the year when scores go up and down,” New Hampton assistant trapshooting coach Gayle Poncelet said. 

“If you don’t shoot in the 240s as a squad, there’s a good chance you won’t win. Everyone’s game steps up once you near the end of the season.”
