- Trap shooting can take place basically anywhere, anytime. You just need some equipment. But for Crandon's high school team, it happens where most people don't know about it - at the historic off-road raceway.
On Saturday, the team held it's annual fund raiser to raise money for their team. This will be senior Kobe Gallion's last season, and he's enjoyed having a non-traditional high school sport as an outlet.
"The competition can get really fierce really fast. The top shooter could shoot a 25, perfect score and then next week could shoot a 5 and then the little kids can start beating us up a little bit," said Gallion.
Those little kids are the 7th and 8th graders that are on the team. All of them know their season wouldn't be possible without the Crandon Off-Road Raceway being a major sponsor. And that community support goes a long way.
"The community really shows a lot of support for what we're trying to do and trying to get the younger kids to come out and shoot. It's nice for even the grandparents that will come out and watch because they can't shoot anymore. And just about that and the community being behind us," said Gallion.
The trap-shooting season is from March until May. The Crandon team had 42 students last year and hopes to keep growing this season.
