The Perham Hot Shots finished their first week of competition despite tough weather conditions. The team is in Conference 2 of Class 7A with 10 other teams. Teams are grouped together in conferences based on team size, not school size.
Shooters are classified by their trap average score for a round of 25 birds. The three classes are novice, junior varsity, and varsity. Each practice and competition is two rounds of trap, or 50 birds. The scores are the number of birds hit out of 50.
In the varsity boys class, Jonah Bieger was the top shooter with 47. For junior varsity boys, Calvin Berry, Gage Carbajal, Dominick Hammers, and Haven Roth shot 36, and for novice boys, Paytan Myers and Wyatt Watercott shot 29 of 50.
The top shooter for the varsity girls class was Shiloh Henderson with a score of 46. Alyssa Hartmann was the top shooter for junior varsity girls with a score of 32, and Britney Loerzel was the top novice with a score of 28.
Due to COVID safety protocols, teams this season have a lot of flexibility in scheduling and posting scores, so not all scores were entered for the conference as of publication and standings were not yet available.
