A young group of trap shooters made up of Winfield Middle and High School students began the fall league last weekend at DuckCreek Trap Field.

The Vikings are part of the USA Clay Target League, which holds virtual competitions in the fall and spring.

The fall league is a short season, with only five competitions. The participating teams across the state are divided into six conferences based on the number of athletes on each team.

The Vikings are in conference three and compete with Burlington, Sterling, Chapman, Garden City and Little River.

Garden City leads the pack after Week 1 scores were compiled, with Winfield in second and Little River third.

The top 11 scores make up weekly points for each team’s competition.

Junior Hunter Zulkoski leads the Vikings with a score of 47/50. Sophomore Eli Samms followed with 46/50. Sophomore Corden Fullhart, freshman Kale Madrigal and eighth-grader Taylor Zulkoski rounded out the top five shooters, all with scores of 41/50.

Week 2 is in the books, and Week 3 is set for a 2 p.m. start Sunday at DuckCreek Trap Field.

The public is invited to attend and support the team. For more information, contact coach Peggy Stalnaker at (620) 262-6063.
