For the 2022 Spring Trap League, 24 college teams were assigned to 4 conferences based on team size and BRTC was the only participant from Arkansas. BRTC’s conference 1A was composed of 9 colleges and universities: Black Hawk College in Moline, Illinois; Dakota College at Bottineau at Bottineau, North Dakota; Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan; Jefferson Community College in Watertown, New York; Lake Region State College in Devils Lake, North Dakota; Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan; Southeastern Illinois College in Harrisburg, Illinois; and Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
“The BRTC Black Hawk community is very proud of Brieanna and Aaryon, who both shot consistently throughout the Spring Season,” said Neal Harwell, BRTC Mental Health Counselor and Spring 2022 BRTC Trap Team sponsor. “They have shown they can compete with top-notch shooters from across the country.”
BRTC’s trap team participated in the USA High School Clay Target League during the 2021-2022 academic year. Teams competed “virtually,” meaning they shot at their local ranges, submitted their scores to the league who compares scores against others in their league. BRTC’s team shot at the shooting range in Corning.
