Clay Crushers dominate Doug Server shoot

CROSSVILLE — For the second straight year, the Cumberland County Clay Crushers trap team dominated four other competing scholastic clay target program teams from central Tennessee to take shooting honors at the second Doug Server shoot-on-the-mountain on April 13 at the Fairfield Glade Sportsman Club.

Competing programs were the Cedar City Straights from Lebanon, the Blue Devil Gunman from Gainsboro, Heritage Shooting team from Maryville and the Sale Creek Panthers from Sale Creek, TN.

In the varsity division, the Clay Crusher Red squad fired a 460X500 to narrowly slip by their fellow teammates in the White squad by just four targets.

Red squad members were Leigh Smith with a 97X100 (high gun, varsity, boy) followed by Seth Petersen (95), Nate Hembree (92), Nathan Wattenbarger (91) and Megan Burgess at 85 (high gun, varsity, girl).

Luke Kemmer’s 94 led the White squad with help from Casey Clark (92), Andy Carey (91), Meghan Server (90, high-over-all (HOA), girl), and Logan Adams at 89. Clay Crusher varsity shooters competing as alternates (non-squaded shooters) were Derrick Taylor who fired a 95 and Cody Chattin with an 84.

The Cumberland County JV squad easily defeated the Sale Creek Panther No.1 shooters by a 453 to 330 score. Clay Crusher shooters were led by Andrew Smith’s personal best score of 98 (high gun, JV, boy) with help from Cody McAnnally (94), Ty Stone (91), Ally Petersen (87) and Madeline Kittrell (83).

The Intermediate Advanced (IA) red squad routed the Heritage shooters 410 to 343. Red squad shooters were Jordan Burgess (89, high gun, IA, boy), Riley Phillips (85), Spencer Wooten (81), Aden Mathis (80) and Hunter Webb (75).

Three Intermediate Entry (IE) Clay Crusher squads competed unopposed with the Red squad firing a 410, the White at 408 and Blue at 295. Red squad shooters were Darren Kittrell (91, high gun, IE, boy), Clint Kemmer (90), Dylan Mowdy (79), Taylor Webb (76, high gun, IE, girl) and Steven Douglas (74).

White squad was led by Mason Dye at 85 with help from Robbie Parks (83), David Weismuller and Cooper Wyatt (81) and Corbin Moore (78).

Katie Dye led the Blue squad with a 70, followed by Kayle Chattin (63) and Karson Dye, Cody Hyder and Gavin Threet all at 54.

There were no Rookie squads in this event.

Brandon Hudgens, a sophomore at Heritage HS, shooting as an alternate, fired the only perfect score of 100X100 to win the high-over-all (HOA) award.

 The Clay Crushers next competition will be at the Hog Heaven Shooting Club in White Pine, TN on April 27.

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
