Peterson, Lokey and Royce are top ATA shooters

CROSSVILLE — Seth Petersen, Gil Lokey and Tom Royce won top honors respectively in singles, handicap and doubles events at the Fairfield Glade Sportsman Club’s second Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) event of the year May 27.

Hot, humid weather greeted a good crowd of shooters from Clinton to Cookeville to compete for shooting honors at the club’s shooting complex on Shorty Barnes Road. When the smoke cleared, awards were evenly divided between two high school students and two super-seniors.

Petersen, a Class B shooter, won the singles championship over Morrison’s Mark Bess by a single target (25 to 24) in a 25-target shoot off  after both tied with 99X100s in regulation.

Petersen, a junior at Stone Memorial, shoulders a Browning XT and is a member of the Cumberland County Clay Crusher scholastic clay target program team.

Leigh Smith won the Class C singles championship over Dayton’s Tom Royce also via a 22 to 21 shoot-off win after both tied with 95X100s in regulation. Smith fires a Browning Sporter Ultra and also competes in the scholastic clay target program.

Crossville’s Gil Lokey won the handicap championship with a 92 firing his Perazzi MX2000 from the 22-yard line. Jim Jameson of Knoxville defeated the 18-25 yard line shooters with a 90, while Royce won the 24-27 yard competition with an 87.

Royce returned to win the doubles event with a 92 to defeat Petersen and Jameson who both fired 86s.

Special thanks to Luanne Brennan who served lunch.

The club’s next ATA shoot will be June 29.
