West Central Area senior Brennan Anderson led the Knights trapshooting team at the 3A Minnesota State High School Trapshooting League Championships Wednesday, June 14, in Alexandria.

The senior took third High Gun Male and fourth overall with a 99, which included a 50 straight and a 25 straight. His first session consisted of two 25 rounds. Feeling the pressure, he missed the first target of the second session, but hit the next 49 in a row for his 99 score.

He was a part of six varsity shooters for WCA. David Larson shot a 94 with two sessions of 47 each. Matthew Bakken (88), Jeremy Fisk (86), Ty Fuoss (84) and Jameson Nadgwick (79) rounded out the varsity shooters from WCA.

The Knights competed in all three divisions. Leading the way for the Junior Varsity division was Jayce Puchalski. He recorded a 25 straight in the first session and finished with an 87. Justin Blascyk (82) and Jacob Puchalski (79) rounded out the top three in the JV division.

For Novice, Israel Sieckert led the way. He tied for 11th overall in the Novice division Wednesday. After hitting just 17 targets in the first round, he followed it up with 20 for a session-one total of 37. In the second session, he put together rounds of 23 and 24 to climb back up the ladder, finishing with an 84 on the day.

Next in line was Jeremy Blascyk, who had two sessions of 19 and 20 for a four-round total of 78 out of 100 targets. Collon Dokka (77), Ezekiel Sieckert (75) and Kadin Craig (69) rounded out the top five Novice shooters for WCA.

The top female shooters were Quinn Huntley with a 70 at the JV level and Avery Gulbrandson with a 45 at the Novice level.
