Clay Crushers dominate at Hog Heaven

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Clay Crushers trap team made their annual trip to the Hog Heaven Shooting Club in White Pine April 28 a successful venture with four of the five divisions returning home as winners.  

Coach Fred Petersen took one varsity squad plus four varsity alternate shooters, two intermediate entry squads and one squad each in junior varsity, intermediate advanced and rookie, for 34 shooters. Eight other scholastic clay target programs from central and east Tennessee also competed at this event.

The Clay Crusher No. 1 varsity squad placed third in the hotly contested varsity division in spite of firing a club-record score of 475X500.

Jefferson County won with a 481 followed by Coffee County’s 478.

This Clay Crusher squad was led by Jimmy Weismuller with a 98X100, followed by Seth Petersen (97), Nick Grayson (94) and Meghan Server and Leigh Smith each with 93.

Four Clay Crusher varsity shooters competed as alternates. They were Thomas Branch at 98, Seth Kemmer (90), Luke Kemmer (88) and Derrick Taylor at 85.

Two perfect scores of 100X100 were posted by varsity shooters Hunter Green of Coffee County and Logan Dunlap of the East TN Straight Shooters.

The JV, IA, IE and Rookie squads all returned as winners.

The JV squad of Andy Carey (92), Casey Clark (90), Nathan Wattenbarger (88), Nate Hembree (87) and Megan Burgess at 75 fired a 432 to easily defeat runner-up Jefferson County at 410 and William Blount at 314.

The IA squad of Cody McAnnally at 97, Andrew Smith (90), Derek Rose (87) and 86 each from Ally Petersen and Derek Rose, for a 466 total, outpaced William Blount at 393 and third-place finisher Jefferson County at 357.

The Clay Crusher No. 1 IE squad of Ryley Phillips at 80, with help from Jordan Burgess (78),  Hunter Webb (78), Madeline Kittrell (76) and Ty Stone at 74 for a 386, was equally impressive in defeating Jefferson County at 335 and Heritage at 320.

The Rookie squad competed unopposed and fired a 338.

Rookie shooters were Clint Kemmer (82), Taylor Webb (78), Darren Kittrell (71), Dylan Mowdy (66) and Katie Dye at 41.

Coach Petersen was pleased with his teams performance in “walking out with four out of five wins”.

The Clay Crusher next event will be the Region III championship at FGSC on June 2-3.
