Club ends clay-tar­get event drought

Albany Extra - - Sport -

Albany Clay Tar­get Club broke a 14-year drought to win the Great South­ern Zone Clay Tar­get teams event at Katan­ning last Sun­day.

The last time Albany won the event was in 2003.

Com­pet­ing against teams from Nar­ro­gin, Wa­gin, Den­mark, Katan­ning and Ko­jonup, the Albany team achieved the high­est over­all score in a 140-tar­get com­pi­la­tion of events in trap, skeet, dou­ble rise and walk-up, to win the pres­ti­gious teams event.

Albany also did well in the in­di­vid­ual events, with Travis Adams win­ning the high gun, the top over­all score, and Matt Waite win­ning the high­est A-grade score.

From the event, a Great South­ern trap and skeet team was se­lected for a Statewide com­pe­ti­tion in April.

Albany was well rep­re­sented in both teams, with Travis Adams and Matt Waite be­ing se­lected for the trap team.

The skeet team con­sists of Michael O’Don­nell, Vic Irv­ing, Travis Adams, Brad Wil­liamson, all from Albany, and Wayne Drake-Brock­man from Den­mark.

Albany Clay Tar­get Club’s Ben Braun, Travis Adams, Mathew Waite, Ol­lie McPart­land and Ja­son Bev­eridge.

High gun win­ner Travis Adams.
