Newton Trap Team ends regular season

GRINNELL — Newton’s varsity squad had a good day on the firing line at its final regular-season trap shooting meet.

The Cardinals rang up 199 clay targets out of 250 for fourth place at Saturday’s meet hosted by Grinnell.

“Our varsity was only four points behind first place,” said Paul Klein, Newton Trap Team coach. 

B-G-M won the meet, which had teams from Grinnell, Montezuma, North Mahaska and Albia along with Newton and B-G-M competing.

Combining for Newton’s varsity were Kayla Klein, Jake Huizenga, Eric Hodge, Alexander Fruetel and Bryce Romick. Kayla Klein, who broke 38 out of 50 clay targets, took top female shooter honors.

Newton Trap Team, a club sport for NHS students, will finish out its season by attending the Iowa State Trap Meet in Cedar Falls on May 30 and 31.  Also, some members will compete at the Iowa State Sporting Clays Competition on June 14.
