ALEXANDRIA — The Worthington High School gun club finished in a tie for 16th out of 54 teams competing at the Minnesota State High School Clay Target Tournament, scoring a 448 Sunday in Alexandria.
Zak Abdulrahman led the way, hitting 95 out of 100 targets, which put him at 16 overall of the 403 shooters.
“You could tell he was getting there over the first few weeks,” Worthington coach Aaron Sieve said. “He was just four total birds from winning the whole thing.
“What we most were proud of was that everyone shot their average or better. The hardest part about state is getting out the nerves and they rose to the occasion.”
Jacob Clarke and Dallas Balk each hit 89 and Kyle Spessard and Luke Gaul each hit 88 to help lead Worthington in the team’s fourth trip to state.
“Every year state gets better and better,” Sieve said. “The scores are getting incredible.”
Worthington junior varsity finished 19th out of 43 JV schools with a score of 383.
Jeremy Majerus hit 83, while Jacob Getzel and Nathan Patton each hit 77 and Bradley Jansma and Alex Thompson each hit 73 to lead the Worthington JV squad.
In the novice division, Halie Spessard finished in 11th out of 41 girls, hitting 47 of 75, while Anna Tims finished fifth out of 14 varsity girls, hitting 82 out of 100.
