Rain and lightning affect Gothenburg trap shooters

DONIPHAN—Not wind nor rain nor even hail could stop members of the Gothenburg Trapshooting Team from competing in Doniphan on Saturday.

Senior-level entrants were forced to shoot in the rain and the handicap competition was halted for a time due to lightning but the contest continued.

Adrian Eggers, an Elwood student who is a member of Gothenburg’s club, led the way for the local team in the senior division in both the 16-yard shoot hitting 48-of-50. He broke 40-of-50 rocks from the 24-yard line for the highest overall score for Gothenburg at 88-of-100.

Colby Simants and Donnie Trisdale were second at 75-of-100.

In the junior division, Landon Johnson was the top shooter for the Gothenburg team breaking 44-of-50 rocks.
