The Scholastic Clay Target Program held championship events for International Skeet and International Bunker Trap the past two weekends. These events are the same as what are competed in at the Olympics.
International Skeet was held May 14-15 at the New Pioneer Gun Club, in Waukee, while the International Bunker Trap Championship was held on May 21 at the AVAD Hunt Club, near Coon Rapids.
In the International Skeet competition, Logan Burxvoort, from the Pella Shooters Club, won the men’s non-collegiate division, while Matthew Brindley, from William Penn, won the men’s collegiate division. Megan Vos, from the Oskaloosa Shooting team, won the women’s non-collegiate division.
At the International Bunker Trap Championship, it was a repeat performance for brother and sister Cole and Lexi Henning, from Wilton, who won the men’s non-collegiate and ladies non-collegiate, respectively. Sam Gannon, from Iowa Central, won the men’s collegiate division. Athletes from both events were invited to the National Junior Olympic Match in Hillsdale, Mich., in July.
The final results from both events are below.

The Scholastic Clay Target Program is the largest, fastest growing, and most exciting youth clay target program in the country. Student athletes from elementary through high school and college have the opportunity to compete in sports such as trap, skeet, and sporting clays, as well as Olympic disciplines like bunker trap and international skeet.
Up next is the American Trap Championships, June 7- 12, at the Iowa State Trapshooting Association Homegrounds, near Cedar Falls.
The SCTP is a youth development program, first and foremost and we do this through the shooting sports and competitive shooting. The SCTP’s mission is to help kids reach their highest potential.
