Clay Crusher varsity skeet team places third at state

The Cumberland County Clay Crusher varsity skeet team, competing in the Tennessee scholastic clay target program, placed third in state team competition at the Nashville Clay Target Complex June 18-22.

The varsity Red squad of Seth Petersen (95X100), Meghan Server (95) and Nathan Hembree (82) with a 272 score, placed eighth out of 28 squads, while varsity White composed of Cody Chattin (94), Andy Carey (91) and Nathan Wattenbarger (72) for a 257, total finished in 15th place.

The 284 team score results from combining the top three individual scores of Petersen, Server and Chattin. The Clarksville High School Shooting Team won both the squad (284) and team (289) titles. Varsity shooters totaled 104.

Meghan Server’s 95 placed second, high-gun in varsity skeet, female and combined with her high academics, earned her a position on the female, all-state skeet team. It is likely that she would also have repeated on the all-state trap team for the fourth year; however, TNSCTP rules state that you can only receive all-state recognition in the discipline in which you qualify with the highest scores. She previously was named to the all-state trap team in 2009, 2011 and 2012.

The Clay Crusher JV squad of Derek Rose (92), Cody McAnally (83) and Ally Petersen (75), for a 250 total finished seventh out of 19 squads. The Unaka High School Shooters from Elizabethton won both squad and team titles with a 272 total. Junior varsity shooters totaled 73.

Aden Mathis led the IA squad with an 83 with help from Ryley Phillips (73) and Jordan Burgess (68) for a 224 total to place 11th out of 22 squads. The Montgomery Central Middle School in Cunningham won the title with a 286 total. Seventy-nine shooters competed in IA.

A total of 334 skeet shooters, competed including 53 in IE and 25 in Rookie.

The third shotgun sport offered within the TNSCTP is sporting clays, with 313 competitors at this state shoot. Although Cumberland County does not field a sporting clays team, congratulations are in order for the  Region III competitors in the Soddy Daisy High School Trojans, who won the sporting clays varsity squad and team championship with a 285 score.

In regards to Cumberland County's skeet program, head coach Fred Petersen stated, “This is just our second year of competitive skeet shooting and those kids that have committed to both programs (trap and skeet) really enjoy having two disciplines in which to compete. Adding a lower level IA division this year will give us a lot more depth."

  • The truth about driver distance

    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.
