Twenty-three members of Brandon Valley’s club trap shooting team competed in the South Dakota High School Clay Target League’s state tournament June 8-9 in Aberdeen.
In the program’s third year, BV placed eighth in the 2A conference division.
“The team did awesome,” said head coach Jason Woidyla.
Two female shooters, in particular, shot well above their averages – Ashten DeJager, a freshman, who scored 71 out of 100 to take third in the novice category, and senior Collen Rowe, who shot 85 to take second in the High Gun Varsity Female category. 
BV’s top shooters were two brothers, Trevor and Drake Swenson, who tooked ninth and 11th, respectively, in the High Gun Varsity Male category. 
Trevor Swenson shot a perfect 50 out of 50 in the second round of shooting Sunday to collect his 92 score and beat his older brother by one point. 
“That was pretty neat,” Woidyla said. “It’s just an awesome sport for anyone. We’re a young team with a nice blend of athletes from sixth through 12th grade. We hope to be even bigger and better next year.”
