MHS CTL Reserve Week: Underclass Crash

MHS CTL Press Release

Talent in grades 8, 9 and 10 highlighted a youth-powered Reserve Week for the Marshall High School Clay Target League team (MHS CTL) as underclassmen showcased their explosive skills leading up to the beginning of state-wide competition beginning with League Week 1 on Mon. Apr. 27.

Posting a pair of 22s for a team high weekly total of 44 was all Junior Brandon VanOverbeke could do to stave off the challenge from the oncoming rush of young shooters.  Leading the way was Freshman Owen Banks, who in addition to an 18, posted a team high round of 23 to finish with a total of 41, tying that of Junior Malachi Breczinski and Sophomore Ryan Landmark - who jumped 11 from the previous week - with rounds of 21 and 20.  Freshman Alex Verkinderen rounded out the top five with a total of 40.

Sophomore Dylan Dulas continued his hot streak from the previous week, with rounds of 18 and 20 to clock in at 38 with Senior Rusty Swanson.  Meanwhile, Eighth Grader Cameron VanOverbeke hung up a pair of 18s to finish in the top sixteen alongside classmate Karter Wasberg who tallied a total of 35 for the week.

“This is the next core of championship-caliber shooters we’re witnessing,” said coach Nick Simonson, “they’ve seen what our Juniors and Seniors did last year at the State Championship in Alexandria, and they want in; I could not be more proud of their progress,” he concluded.

With the Reserve Week in the books, the team begins league competition the week of Apr. 27.  MHS CTL faces fierce challengers in Class 4A’s Conference 4 against such schools as prep recruiting Mecca Cretin-Durham Hall and constant contender Mahtomedi High.

“They’ll rise to any challenge,” said Simonson, “I’ve seen it in the dedication, focus and grit these kids have shown in all conditions so far this season.”

MHS CTL, established in 2014, is funded through the financial support of Redwood River Sportsman’s Club, the Buffalo Ridge Gobblers chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, Lyon County Pheasants Forever, the MidwayUSA Foundation, Pheasants Forever’s Youth Shooting Sports Initiative, and a number of private and business donors throughout the area. The team is helmed by 10 volunteer coaches and scorers from the Marshall area.  This year, 235 schools and over 8,600 students in Minnesota are taking part in the Spring CTL season.  For more information on the fastest growing high school sport in the state, visit www.mnclaytarget.com.

MHS CTL Heats Up Practice Week 2

MHS CTL Press Release

Warmer temps and better conditions met the Marshall High School Clay Target League Team (MHS CTL) as the 51-member squad got to its second Practice Week in the 2015 season.  Monday’s wind came with temps in the mid-60s, making the gusts of 30 mph somewhat tolerable.  The breezes didn’t faze Team Captain, Junior Alex DeBaere, as he posted a team-high round of 23, along with a 21 to lead the weekly totals with 44.  Sophomores Sam Dieken and Ryan Van Moer posted repeat rounds of 21 and 20 respectively to fill out the top three with totals of 42 and 40.

Calm and temperate conditions met shooters on Saturday morning, giving participants a chance to really show their stuff in ideal circumstances.  Sophomore Dylan Dulas followed up a string of impressive practice rounds in the previous week by ringing up back-to-back rounds of 19 to post a top-five total of 38 and the biggest week-over-week jump of 15 targets hit.  Meanwhile, eighth grader Nick Atcher recorded rounds of 19 and 17 for a top-ten finish, and a week-over-week jump of 13 targets hit.  Brothers John Callens (Soph.) and Isaac Callens (8th Gr.) finished in the top fifteen with identical rounds of 18 and 16 for totals of 34.

Soph. Sam Dieken doubles down on rounds of 21 to post the second highest total of the week for the MHS CTL team.

“Conditions were ideal for shooters on Saturday,” said Coach Kevin Kayser, “it was our first real chance to see how our participants have improved from last season and week-over-week,” he concluded.

With both Practice Weeks in the books, the MHS CTL team moves on to the Reserve Week.  Scores recorded in the Reserve Week are used in case of inclement weather cancelling regularly-scheduled league shoots from Apr. 27 through May 27 and as the tie-breaker in case of ties at the end of the upcoming five-week regular season.  So, while not an officially scored week, it carries some weight and importance before the primary portion of the season gets underway.

MHS CTL, established in 2014, is funded through the financial support of Redwood River Sportsman’s Club, the Buffalo Ridge Gobblers chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, Lyon County Pheasants Forever, the MidwayUSA Foundation, Pheasants Forever’s Youth Shooting Sports Initiative, and a number of private and business donors throughout the area.
