On Saturday, September 15, part of the Lyon College Shooting sports team won the open division at the first annual Dan Burton FCA Trap Shoot in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The team shot a 232/250. Senior Blake Caldwell shot a 44 out of 50. High school students Ryan Bowen and Paige Hanna shot a 48 and 47 respectively. Head Coach Dalton Lamons shot a 47 while his father, Randy Lamons shot a 46.
“The targets were tough and the competition was even tougher,” said Lamons. “We have had one tournament so far and one win, so that's a good direction to be heading. I'm hoping for big individual success this season.”
Upcoming competitions for the fall include an ACUI shoot at the Central Midwest Conference Championships in Sparta, Illinois and the ACUI Easter Super Shoot in Tillar, Arkansas.
The Lyon College Shooting Sports Program, formerly known as the Lyon College Trap Team, is an independent student organization that participates in multiple clay target disciplines, including Bunker Trap, American/International Trap, American/International Skeet, Sporting Clay, and 5-stand.
