Two Harbors High School had 27 shooters this year, 21 males and six females. The season started out disappointingly due to lower than hoped for scores and low team averages. As the season progressed Two Harbors worked their way up to finish in fifth place in a conference of seven teams.
“We saw great improvement over the course of our season and are looking forward to next year,” said coach Gary Hastings.
Some highlights of the season included perfect scores of 25 turned in by Colton McCollough, Miles Thomasen, Lucas Nelson and Andrew Hulst. Several of the team’s male and female shooters were in the top 25 individual shooters in their conference. High guns were Joey Marker, male, and Katarina Hanson, female.
Two Harbors competed in the Hermantown Invitational trap tournament where the team’s novice division shooters won first place with Isaac Nurmi taking the top gun award in that division. This past week, Two Harbors competed in the 2016 Trapshooting Championship in Alexandria. Novice and junior varsity teams finished sixth in their class. The varsity team took 21st place out of 43 teams. Unfortunately, Two Harbors did not qualify for the MSHSL State Tournament in Prior Lake, ending their season.
