LINCOLN, Neb. – In the lead up to its conference championship meet, the Concordia University shooting sports teams broke a pair of records while in action at the Midland University Ice Out this past weekend (Sept. 21-22). The Bulldogs set new standards in sporting clays and in double skeet at the event that took place at Lincoln Trap & Skeet. Additionally, senior Monica Dale nearly shot a perfect score in double skeet while placing first among females.

Head coach Scott Moniot’s was fresh off a new school record in trap set the previous week at the Fort Hays State Intercollegiate Shoot. At the Midland Ice Out, Concordia put up team scores of 233/250 in double skeet and 454/500 in sporting clays. Said Moniot, “It’s given us a bar of where we’re at. We’re actually ahead of where I was hoping we would be at this point in time.”

The Bulldogs placed third at the Midland Ice Out in sporting clays. Six Concordia competitors cracked 90 or more targets in the event: junior Wyatt Eriksen (91), sophomore Tommy Sosso (91), sophomore Damien Stewart (91), junior Rebecca Tierney (91), freshman Chris Berkshire-Lewis (90) and sophomore Wyatt Hambly (90).

The team’s top five in double skeet included Dale (49), sophomore Colten Uitermarkt (48), freshman Cole Hammond (46), Hambly (45) and sophomore Nicole Breese (45). The school record of 233 put the Bulldogs three targets out of first place.

Also this past week, alum Erin Lokke and current junior Emma Van Donselaar competed at part one of the U.S. Shotgun Olympic Trials in Kerville, Texas. Lokke hit 226 targets (out of 250) and placed eighth. The final leg of the Olympic Trials will be held Feb. 25 – March 8 in Tucson, Ariz.

Next up on the schedule for the Bulldogs is the Prairie Circuit Fall Classic Championship in North Platte, Neb., this Friday and Saturday (Sept. 28-29). The event serves as a conference championship for several shooting sports programs in the region.
