We had a great week with our Tech Trap & Skeet shooting team down at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio for the ACUI National Championships.  Over 70 different schools across the US, most with between 5 to 20 individual team members and some with over 50 members, came to compete across a multitude of challenging clay target games.  These games consist of American Trap, Wobble Trap, American Skeet, International (Olympic) Trap and International (Olympic) Skeet, 5 stand, and Sporting Clays.  These games are very difficult and competitors attending this event are competing at a very high level and with exceptional talent.  Several members from different teams from these schools are set to try out for the Olympic shooting sports in the near future as well.

 

Approximately 10 schools across the nation took home awards, either for team or individual wins.   We are proud to say that the Texas Tech team was among one of those schools.   We had two individual shooters place second in Wobble Trap and International Skeet for a special scholarship event being held during the early part of the week.  Several of our shooters placed 4th in other various events as well, missing a 2nd or 3rd place finish by as little as 2 or 3 targets after shooting a 95 or 96 out of 100.  Some of these schools operate their shooting programs on a near limitless budget and their team members are essentially expected to shoot a perfect 100 out of 100 in various events.   Even the Coaches, alumni, and parents had the opportunity to compete in an Invitational Sporting Clay Competition for endowment money for our team.  Our team came in second in this invitational event.  The Tech Trap & Skeet team made a great showing as they demonstrated what team spirit and skill can do on a limited budget against these schools dedicated to clay target shooting.  We feel with the right funding and monetary support we can really make an impact at these competitions in the future.

 

There was great camaraderie with all of the different students and this annual event is a wonderful way for Texas Tech to make its presence known in competition with other top colleges in the shooting sports.  Tech competed in the ACUI Regional shoot in October 2014 and had several 1st and 2nd place finishes as well in those clay target events.  We have some great ideas for the future for our Tech Team and ways to even further improve Texas Tech’s standing among other colleges in ACUI.
