40 students from 4 Wyoming high school teams are participating in the inaugural Wyoming State High School Clay Target League’s (WYSHSCTL) 2019 spring season, which began March 31st.
The Wyoming State High School Clay Target League is a part of the USA High School Clay Target League, which is the largest youth clay shooting sports program in the nation. Each team in the League is 100% school-approved.
John Nelson, President of the WYSHSCTL stated quote, “We are thrilled to expand our program to schools and athletes across the state. The demand for alternative high school activities related to the state’s longstanding outdoor traditions has never been higher.” End quote.
The League’s co-ed and adaptive nature are key attractions to high schools in Wyoming. The League is fully Title IX compliant with both male and female athletes competing on the same team. Additionally, it’s an ‘adaptive’ sport, which allows students with physical disabilities to take part.
Upon completion of the Spring League, all student athletes are invited to participate in individual and team competitions at the 2019 State Tournament. The location of the competition has yet to be determined, but it will take place in June of this year.
