Princeton’s trap shooting team is producing shooters who can compete at the state’s top level.

Princeton’s trap shooters are 42 members strong this season under the direction of new head coach, Scott Moehlmann. The team found success in the fall when they had two shooters in the top 25 overall in the state, Madison Borgman and Michael Stichter, both of whom have returned for the spring season.

In addition to the success they had earlier this year, last year’s spring season produced two shooters within the state’s top 25 ranks as well, with Randy Peterson and Hugh Lubenow garnering those accolades.

Among the team’s departures are Sarah Hoobler, Dylan Leiding and Hunter Bryant, but a plethora of newcomers to the team, including Estin Bishman, Riley Cunningham, Ethan Engbrecht, Clara Kohanek, Max Nelson, Logan Sager, Andrew Schultz, Will Vrchota, Zach Bialik, Cyler Lambrecht, Caden Wolsfeld and Bradley Duerr should help to offset the key departures.

Moehlmann said the conference is yet to be solidified but practices are well underway for one of the fastest-growing sports in the state.

The focus this season is going to be doing the little things right; ensuring the fundamentals and routine are in order is going to be key, Moehlmann said. “We have a lot of very talented shooters this year,” he said. “Many of our new shooters are also very experienced.”
