SCTP Holds First Texas Regional Championship

SCTP Texas Regional The Allen Eagles Competitive Shooting Team and Fort Worth Claymores Shooting Team boosted their team endowment accounts last month with big winnings of $9500 at SCTP's first Regional Championship in Texas, the Clay Bustin' Bonanza. The athletes enjoyed two days of skeet, trap, and sporting clays at Ellis County Sportsmans Club. The Allen Eagles won the tournament, earning a $4,000 first-place endowment. They won an additional $1,000 for the high overall individual score posted by Lake Bishop and $500 for Hunter Alford's runner-up finish. The Fort Worth Claymores also earned a $3,000 endowment as the second-place team, plus $1,000 for first place in the Flurry. Congratulations to the winning teams and to our Texas athletes for their first Regional Championship!
