The Aledo Clay Busters, including members, from left, Ally Mason, Jacob Hale, Scott Mason and Jackson Shori enjoyed strong showings in trap and skeet at the recent Youth Education in Shooting Sports National Tourney.

The Aledo Clay Busters competitive clay target team enjoyed a strong finish in two events during the Youth Education in Shooting Sports National Tournament June 28-30 at the National Shooting Center in San Antonio.

The trap squad finished second in the mixed trap event, while the skeet squad finished third in the mixed skeet event.  

Mixed squads are composed of five shooters with various age and experience levels: varsity, junior varsity and intermediate.  

“I’m extremely proud of what our team members have accomplished this year,” Head Coach Creighton Maynard said.  

“These shooters have worked hard to improve their shooting skills over the season which resulted in top performances during this tournament.”  

Several ACB team members posted one or more personal best scores across three events:  trap, skeet and sporting clays.

 Aledo Clay Busters offers youth shooters (grades 7-12) in the Weatherford and Aledo areas the opportunity to learn gun safety, shooting skills and compete with other youth around the country in the clay target sports.

ACB begins its third year of competition with tryouts in late August.
