  • Earlier this month five students from Pratt Community College traveled to San  Antonio to compete in a national shooting competition.
    The team took 11th place out of 26 teams in their division.
    “I think we did pretty well,” said Korey Pfannenstiel, sophomore from Hays. “We improved throughout the year and did the best we had done all year at nationals. I was happy with how we did as a team.”
    Along with Pfannenstiel, Trae Gerlach sophomore from Mulvane, Billy Milton, Tyler Bock sophomore from Kingman, and Jacob Falk participated on the team.
    While there, the students competed in American and International Trap, American and International Skeet, 5-stand and sporting clays.
    The students got to experience a few events that they haven’t done before,” said Luke Laha, co-sponsor of the shooting club.
    Laha said new events to the students were the international ones and because of that, those events weren’t where the team did well. Laha said the team’s best event was the 5-stand because they have one that they can practice on weekly.
    Laha said in the future he would like to add another five solid shooters to the team and be competing for one of the top spots.
