CROSSVILLE — The Clay Crushers opened their 2014 Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) trap season on March 15 by joining 15 teams and 250 shooters at the Big Springs Shooting Complex in Christiana, TN.

The Clay Crushers varsity red finished third with a score of 471x500 just three targets behind top finisher Middle Tennessee Christian School of Murfreesboro with a 474.

The Clay Crushers were tied with Marshall County for third position with both squads posting a 391. The tie-breaker was determined by reviewing the last 25 posted scores by the two squads.

Marshall County eased past the Clay Crushers to claim third place.

Twelve teams competed in the IA division with the Clay Crushers IA #1 finishing third with a score of 460x500.

Coach Fred Petersen feels the athletes have improved in several areas as compared to this time last year.

“Their focus, form, stance, and numbers have all improved. They are just performing at a higher level,” he said. "I expect good things this year from the team and feels they will again be competitive at the state and national levels.
