The Rugby High School Panther Hot Shots recently competed in their first ever High School State Trap Shoot, held at the Shooting Park in Horace on June 17, 2017. There were over 650 kids in attendance.

Rugby had an impressive finish to their inaugural season, finishing 12th at State. They also received awards for finishing first in their Conference. There were 18 students making up the team, with one from TGU. This was the first year Trap Shooting was a High School sport at RHS, and only the fourth year it has been recognized in the state as a school sport, having started their first year with only four schools. The interest in shooting sports continues to explode, as they grew to 34 schools in the 2017 season.

Rugby had three students recognized in the conference. In the girls division, Kyla Radomski finished first, followed by McKenzie Tuenge with second. In the Boys division, Seth Jaeger finished second.

At the State Shoot, Jaeger was spot on. Having hit all 75 of 75 Targets and taking home the Boys Varsity Champion award. Radomski placed third in the Girls Varsity division with 65/75.

This year’s team was coached by Randy Knain and Vince Mattern. Members of the team were Joey Brossart, Seth Jaeger, Tim Mueller, John Mueller, Blake Haakenson, Zach Jaeger, Kaden Jaeger, Kyla Radomski, McKenzie Tuenge, Riley Kuntz, Amber Schmaltz, Riley Tuenge, Ethan Brossart, Kordell Kraft, Blair Kuhnhenn (TGU), Carson Mattern, Colin Adam and Nick Adam.
