Wisconsin shooters earn spots on national teams
Tyler Theide of Mazomanie, Wis., and Madelynn Bernau of Waterford, Wis., recently shot their way onto the inaugural Scholastic Clay Target Program/USA Shooting National Bunker Trap teams.
The top three men and women at the SCTP’s International Style Championships, July 23-29 in Colorado Springs, Colo., qualified for the team. Details regarding training camps and a head coach for the team are yet to come.
Theide, of the Sauk County Youth Shooting Team, was joined on the men’s team by Trevor Evelhair of Unityville Pa., and Jack Brosseau of Durant, Fla.
On the women’s side, Bernau (BHS Demons Shooting Team) was joined by Madeleine Taylor of Eagle River, Alaska, and Heather Brooks of Spring Hill, Tenn.
Wisconsin also had two shooters earn spots on the International Skeet team during the week, with Sarah Schwacher of the Waterford Wolverines Shooting Team and Aimee Spiering of the Union Grove Broncos Shooting Club earning two of the three spots on the women’s team.
The Scholastic Clay Target Program is the official youth shooting program to USA Shooting and provides a pipeline for future international shotgun competitors.
