Crandon trap shooting club builds on successSubmitted: 05/20/2015
CRANDON - Many Northwoods high schoolers turn to trap shooting as their sport of choice.

The Crandon School District started a team last year, and its popularity is soaring.


The team got off the ground thanks to some hard work and perseverance.

"There was a group of us that all had the outdoor newspaper," says Crandon Head Coach Larry Palubicki. "We shot men's league and started kicking around the idea that there were other teams in the state that had trap clubs, so we decided that Crandon should have a trap club."

The idea caught fire from there.

"Reception was fantastic," says Palubicki. "It was well received by not only the school but the school board and the community. Our first year we had started with a balance of $0, and through the efforts of community donations solely, they donated about $3,000 to get us up and moving."

Now in its second year, the club has produced nothing but success. 

"We just finished in Eau Claire, and kind of had a historic day in terms of, our JV team took first place overall out of 21 teams," says Palubicki. "We also had three boys in the JV division place in the top ten."

And with an ever-expanding roster of shooters, that success should continue on for years to come.

MINOCQUA - The Chequamegon baseball team carries one of the best records in the Northwoods.

The team started off poorly, but has won its last 12 out of 14 games to sit at 13-5.

The varsity team has seven seniors that look to lead the team to a successful playoff run.

The past two years the Screaming Eagles have made it to sectionals. But they haven't made the next step and advanced to state.

"Experience you know things don't, they're not intimidated to play some of these things," Chequamegon's coach Tom Armstrong said. "That makes a big difference, you know we've been in the fire a few times and a lot of these guys have been in sectionals and been in conference championship games."
