Corning Senior Trap Team takes Second Place in AYSSP

JACKSONVILLE – On May 4, all of Westside’s senior high trap shooters lined up and, hockey or baseball style, congratulated its region rival, the Black squad from Corning High School, for winning the Arkansas Youth Shooting Sports Program’s East Regional championship. The way Corning won that day, only missing 7 shots out of 250, it deserved the accolades.

But Saturday, June 1, it was the Westside Warriors’ top five-person shooting squad, the Red team that left the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation’s Jacksonville Shooting Sports Complex with the biggest bragging rights and the congratulations from its rivals. Facing Corning Black head to head for the AYSSP Senior State Championship at the end of a long day of shooting, Westside’s fivesome missed just two of 125 targets, winning 123-119 to take the championship.
