Kent County News - - SPORTS -

GLENN DALE — Washington’s trap and skeet team placed fifth among eight teams at the ACUI Up­per East Coast Con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship shoot, which estab­lishes seed­ing for the Col­le­giate Clay Tar­get Cham­pi­onships to be held next March in Texas.

A team’s com­pos­ite score is cal­cu­lated by in­clud­ing the discipline scores of each of the five top over­all per­form­ers.

Lib­erty fin­ished with a total of 1,576, com­fort­ably in front of run­ner-up Univer­sity of Mary­land (1,484).

The scores were much closer among the next four teams: Vir­ginia Tech (1,394), James Madi­son (1,384), Washington (1,376) and the Univer­sity of Ten­nessee (1,337).

The Univer­sity of Delaware (1,279) and Ge­orge Ma­son (1,146) rounded out the field.

While of­fi­cial team stand­ings for the in­di­vid­ual disci- plines were not kept, Washington would have placed fourth in both Amer­i­can trap and Amer­i­can skeet, sixth in super sport­ing clays and eighth in sport­ing clays.

Shore se­nior cap­tain Danielle Mur­dock was the top woman in Amer­i­can skeet and placed fourth over­all among 18 women in the con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship shoot that was held over two days in Novem­ber at the Prince Ge­orge’s Trap and Skeet Cen­ter.

Mur­dock broke 89 of 100 tar­gets in Amer­i­can skeet, 81 tar­gets in Amer­i­can trap, 69 tar­gets in sport­ing clays and 31 of 56 tar­gets in super sport­ing clays. Her total across the four dis­ci­plines was 270, just one more than than Lib­erty’s Chloe Sterner.

Also for Washington, ju­nior Sa­van­nah Ross (225) was 10th, fresh­man Sammy DiLoreto (196) was 13th and se­nior Kait­lyn Marino (163) tied for 15th.

Sopho­more Nathaniel Neu­land had the best fin­ish for Washington’s men, plac­ing 20th among 62 shoot­ers with 282 tar­gets. He edged fresh- man team­mate Will Sears by two tar­gets.

Sopho­more Camerin Cara­ballo tied for 31st with a score of 264. Then came ju­nior Jor­dan Uk­ishima (260, tied for 33rd) and fresh­man Lan­ning Tyrrel (237, 44th).
