MARSHALL — The Marshall Shooting Team recently wrapped up its fall conference season, where Marshall placed second in trap shooting in Conference 14 as a team as well as first as a team in the conference in Sporting Clays.
Several individuals for Marshall also earned high placements at both the conference and state level. In trap, KayLynn Sieber placed first in the conference for HOA (High Over All) female and tied for second HOA female in the state, with only a 0.1 difference between first and second place and tied for ninth in the Top 100 of the state. Derek Holmgren tied for 34th in the Top 100 of the state and Logan Waltz tied for 60th.
In skeet shooting, Sieber placed first as the HOA female in the conference while Lindsey Olsen placed third in the conference.
Finally, in Sporting Clays, Sieber placed HOA in the state for both male and female as well as earning HOA female for the state and HOA female in the conference. Waltz placed HOA male for the state and in the conference and Holmgren placed second in the conference while Brock Schultz tied for fifth for the state.
Marshall Shooting Team coach Brian Sieber said he is proud of the way their kids competed during the fall as a group.
“It was awesome, the kids were amazing. They really stepped up to the plate and shot really well,” coach Sieber said. “They were very disciplined and worked well with all of the coaches and did everything with a smile on their face.”
Coach Sieber added they weren’t initially sure they were going to have a fall season because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but was pleased they were able to compete.
“First off, we weren’t sure that we were going to have a season this fall. Fortunately with trap shooting, the positions of where you shoot from you are already 6 feet apart so that helped ease the minds of our kids and parents,” coach Sieber said. “We also changed practices and times to shoot so that there weren’t as many kids there at once and we follow all of the safety protocols.”
Going into the spring season, coach Sieber said hopefully they will be able to get to have a season and that they can keep their momentum from the fall going.
“Hopefully we can keep the momentum going and see how far we can go with it,” coach Sieber said. “We just want to keep improving and have as much fun as we can.”
