Ducks wrap season up with dominant showing at US Open Youth Clay Shooting Sports Championships

Members of the Colusa County Youth Shooting Sports Club who participated in the US Open Youth Clay Shooting Sports Championships pose for a picture with their hardware on Saturday.

Just when it seemed like things couldn’t get any better for the first-year Colusa County Youth Shooting Sports program, a handful of Ducks came through with dominant performances at the United States Open 2017 Youth Clay Shooting Sports Championships in Las Vegas on July 13-15.

Colusa County Youth Shooting Sports coach Sean Doherty described the team’s first season on Monday, and put it simply: “We crushed it.”

In the Intermediate-Entry Sporting Clays division, Blake Kalfsbeek and Chase Carrere placed first and third, hitting 95-of-100 and 80-of-100 targets, respectively. Anthony Felix finished fourth in the division.

The Ducks’ three-man Sporting Clays team, composed of Kalfsbeek, Carrere and Felix, were the top-shooting team in their division.

“Their score would have placed them in the top three in the Junior Varsity division,” Doherty said. “There were just shooting the lights out. We also took second place in High-3 – awarded to the top three shooting teams among all divisions – which is pretty incredible because there’s three other divisions above where the kids were competing.”

In the Rookie Sporting Clays division, Luke Kalfsbeek shot 76-of-100 targets, good for second place.

Carrere and Blake Kalfsbeek finished second and third, respectively, in the IE Individual Trap division. Carrere shot 192-of-200 trap targets, while Kalfsbeek shot 191-of-200. The Ducks’ five-man IE trap team, which included Blake Kalfsbeek, Carrere, Luke Kalfsbeek (a rookie competing on the IE team), Felix, and Gus Armstrong, hit an impressive 920-of-1,000 targets to claim first place as a squad. The score was good enough to earn the Ducks IE Trap Squad third place in High-5 for junior gun clubs.

Luke Kalfsbeek took second place in the Rookie Individual Overall for trap, hitting 187-of-200 targets.

Hannah Doherty, the Duck’s lone JV shooter, had an impressive couple of rounds to close out her day of trap shooting, hitting 25 straight in one round and 24-of-25 targets in the other.

Gus Doherty took eighth place in the Intermediate-Advanced Trap Division.

The Ducks will get right back to practicing at the end of August, in preparation for the upcoming Sporting Clays season, coach Sean Doherty said. â–
