LINCOLN, Neb. – In the second outing of the spring season, the Concordia University Shooting Sports team went up against competitors from nine other institutions as part of the Doane Tiger Invitational held at Lincoln Trap & Skeet Club in Lincoln, Neb., this past Saturday and Sunday (March 5-6). The Bulldogs came up just short of the award stand but got stellar across-the-board scores from senior Wyatt Hambly, whose high overall total of 311 was tops on the team.

Concordia first started back up this spring with the Lindenwood Spring Open on Feb. 26-27 when it placed fifth out of 11 teams that descended upon the St. Louis area. A group of 19 Bulldogs competed at the Lincoln Trap & Skeet Club.

At the Doane Invite, trophies were handed out to the top three teams (based on overall targets hit), which were Fort Hays State University (Kan.), Midland University and Iowa Western Community College. Based on its top five individual scores from each of the four disciplines that made up the Doane Invite, Concordia shot 468 in skeet, 399 in sporting clays, 450 in trap and 212 in super sporting for a high overall total of 1,529. There were more than 100 shooters that competed in each of the four categories.

Below is a summary of the top five Bulldogs by discipline. Not only did Hambly crack the most overall targets, he was Concordia’s best performer in skeet (tied with Wyatt Eriksen), sporting clays (tied with Eriksen) and super sporting. Wayne Moore led the way in trap. The team’s top overall female shooter was Nicole Breese with a 289. Breese shot a 94 in skeet and a 43 in super sporting.
