SCTP Collegiate Nationals Crowns New Champions

SCTP (Scholastic Clay Target Program) College Nationals returned to its historic fall schedule at the Cardinal Shooting Center with the International Bunker and Skeet Disciplines kicking off the event on the 6th of October. These very challenging clay target sports continue to gain the attention of American competitors and coaches, with many Olympians at Tokyo having spent previous time as athletes or supporters of the SCTP.

Using the newly constructed international venue at the Cardinal Center, SCTP saw one of the newest teams to the SCTP College cadre, University of the Ozarks from Arkansas would take top honors in both of the International Divisions of Bunker Trap and International Skeet.

Top achievements:

• Lindenwood University shot a 989/1000, taking top tournament honors in the American Trap event

• Jacksonville University set a SCTP College Nationals record in Sporting Clays, shooting a 985/1000

• Emmanuel College took the top spot in the 5-Stand event, shooting a 474/500

Fort Hays State University was high team in the American Skeet category with a 986/1000. They started with only missing 1 target out of their first 500 (499/500) and would go on to be the tournaments High Over All team.

Networking and recruitment at Nationals:

Back by popular demand, high school athletes were invited to join the shoot, allowing them to compete in a separate high school competition. Intended as a useful opportunity for coaches interested in meeting the next class of shooters, the integration of networking is now a mainstay of College Nationals. Additionally, this gave rising athletes an opportunity to learn from college-level athletes and become familiar with college shooting programs throughout the nation.

Next up at the Cardinal Shooting Center: SCTP Olympic Training Camps and SCTP National Championships:

In addition to SCTP College Nationals, the Cardinal Shooting Center is also home to SCTP Olympic Training Camps, Spring Regional Championships, and July’s SCTP National Championship, the biggest shoot in Cardinal Center history. In the previous season’s event, over 2.2 million rounds were safely fired as teams of junior shooting sports athletes stepped to the line at their National Championships in an attempt to make it to the podium under the grandstand lights. The 2022 SCTP National Championship kicks off July 9th with the International Skeet and Trap events, followed by American disciplines, side games, and awards through the 16th.

Sparta, Georgia’s Lake Oconee Shotgun Team Looking to Stay on Top at the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) 2019 National Championships!

Twenty seven (27) Youth Athletes from the Sparta, Georgia Lake Oconee Shotgun Team are here at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, Ohio with one goal in mind! Equal or better that 2018 performance at the SCTP National Championships at the 2019 SCTP National Championships. In 2018, Team Oconee was the HOA Team for all three shotgun disciplines, trap, skeet, and sporting clays. In addition, Lake Oconee finished 4th overall in trap.

Steve Lane, Head Coach of the Lake Oconee Shotgun Team says, “our team worked very hard this season to prepare for the National Championships. Most of our athletes have returned from last year so we are heading into the Cardinal Center ready to perform at our best”.

In addition to the 27 athletes, Lake Oconee Shotgun Team has almost all the parents and even a few grandparents make the trip to support their youth athletes.

The Lake Oconee Shotgun Team has athletes from 5th grade through seniors in high school. Three of the team’s seniors are graduating this year, two of those graduating seniors will be members of the  Emanuel College Shotgun Team following graduation.

Pre-Registration for SCTP nationals begins May 15th, 2019

Like last year, due to the extremely large volume of teams and coaches trying to squad for the National Championships,  we will again be allowing teams to “pre-squad” for the 2019 SCTP National Championships at the Cardinal Center in Marengo, Ohio.

Here’s how it will work:
1. Send a check for the proper amount of all squads and athletes to the Burlington WI address post marked no earlier than 12:01am on May 15th and no later than midnight on May 22nd.

2. Money received is “Non-Refundable”. Pre-registration fees will not be returned for any athletes that do not attend the SCTP National Championships.

3. All squads must be “pre-built” on your team’s home page for the National Championships. Teams will be allowed to change athletes as they see fit later but all squads must be ready to populate the shooting schedule.

4. SCTP will populate the squad assignments based on the time and date received (time stamp) on the envelope containing your paperwork and check. PLEASE send by regular mail with NO signature required. Sending paperwork requiring a signature may delay your paperwork! 

5. Download and complete the pre-registration form (also available on the SSSF website) that provides your information along with dates and times you would like your squads assigned. Please give us 3 options for times and days.

6. Teams will be notified of their pre-registration by May 29 and before normal registration which opens on June 1st.

Note:
Completed form(s) must be sent in with payment either by credit card or by check, no payment sent in with forms will result in no squads entered for that team. These payments are “nonrefundable”!! If you pay for 15 athletes and only 12 show up, the other 3 athlete’s fees are not returned.

Completed forms and payments must be mailed to us no sooner than May 15, 2019 and sent to:

2017 SCTP College Nationals

Marengo, OH – The SCTP College Nationals were held October 27-29, 2017 at the “Spooky” Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, OH. The facility, decked out with ghouls, goblins and witches, was once again the host for this 3rd annual College event!

231 athletes of representing 25 teams from 15 states made up over 700 registrations at this year’s College Nationals! Throwing over 125,000 clay targets in Trap, Skeet, Sporting Clays, Bunker Trap and 5-Stand kept the Cardinal Center staff quite busy for a few days.

This year’s tournament experienced some very “terrifying” weather thanks to Mother Nature! Rain and snow coupled with temperatures dipping into the low 30’s made for some very interesting rounds!

Division 1 teams comprised of this year’s (HOA) champions, Lindenwood University of Missouri! Runner up, Midland University of Nebraska gave them a tough battle as did 3rd place Bethel College from Tennessee.

Division II teams included this year’s champion’s Martin Methodist of Tennessee (who had the overall HOA high score for the 2nd straight year), runner-up Ft. Hayes State University of Kansas followed by Hillsdale College of Michigan.

Division III schools were represented by this year’s National Champions Emanuel College of Georgia, Runner-ups University of Alabama Clay Shooting Team and 3rd place team, Eastern Kentucky University.

This year, the SCTP added Division IV. This newly added division will consist of 2 Year Colleges of which was won by Roane State Community College of Tennessee with Runner-up, Hawkeye Community College of Iowa!

Individuals turning in stellar performances included Ladies HOA winner, Paige Denny of the Midland University Shotgun Team and Men’s HOA winner, Riley Ross representing Ft. Hayes State. These athletes won Shamrock Leather Shooting bags compliments of the SCTP and Shamrock! Other notables were a perfect performance shot in the Skeet event (200 Straight) by Eli Christman – Martin Methodist College!

Braving the snow and frigid temperatures all day at the 2017 SCTP College Nationals on Saturday, athletes found some energy to compete in a “Spooktacular” Last Competitor Standing competition along with a costume judging contest (by their peers)!

For the costume contest, coming in 1st place and dressed as a Panda Bear was Darrien Lettman. 2nd place went to Noah Adair dressed as a clown and 3rd place went to a chicken worn by Mark Beardsley! These athletes were awarded shamrock leather products and ammunition provided by Fiocchi. Congratulations and great job by all of our costume wearing athletes!!

Competing in the Last Competitor Standing competition and toughing out the below average temperatures of a late October evening were the following athletes: Dressed as a “T-Rex” and fighting off all competition was the champion and “Last Competitor Standing”, Christian Salvanera! The Runner up award was won by Andy Carey with 3rd place going to Ty McCaskey, 4th awarded to Marcus Draves and 5th going to Nathan Hembree!

Great job to all of the competitors and we sure hope you all had a wonderful time!

“Great facility, great teams/coaches/athletes/parents and cold weather! The SCTP Team worked very hard and thoroughly enjoyed working with these great teams. We are extremely excited and looking forward to next year’s tournament!” commented Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Director. “We received the final score sheet at about 2:00pm on Sunday, started handing out awards at 2:15 and were finished (waving good-bye) to the teams and athletes by 3:00pm! It just doesn’t get any better than that for these teams!”

For a full list of results and finishes in all disciplines, please see our website at www.sssfonline.org and click on “results”.
