Orange Crushers Update
The coaches of the Orange Crushers took 24 kids (eight 3-man teams) to Sparta, Illinois for the National Championships, July 12-17th. They shot 200 Sporting Clays Monday and Tuesday and 200 Skeet Wednesday and Thursday. Everyone has worked very hard over the last nine months to get ready for this competition.
Our Collegiate Team finished 4th in the nation in Sporting Clays 517/600.
One of our J.V. Teams finished 12th with a fine score of 479/600.
Intermediate Advanced Team placed 5th in skeet with a score of 443/600.
In skeet, we shot the TOP SCORE of all 3000 kids involved with a score of 586/600, which was shot by our Collegiate Team (Brett Belrose, Tyler Moore, and Hunter Brander).
His partner, Hunter Brander, shot 196/200 to finish 3rd in the NATION!
So, as a coach to have the Top Team and the Top Shooter in the Nation is an unbelievable feeling.
We want to say “Thank You” to our coaches who gave up their time and talent to help get us on top of the podium.
Tim Wiley tells all his kids “It’s not about winning, it’s about learning the game properly”, but he admits it feels awfully good to win!
We wanted to let you know how well the KCCL Orange Crushers did this past weekend as we are pretty proud of them ourselves!
