    Record-Breaking Turnout at
    College Clay Target Championships

    ACUI Tournament Gets Under Way in San Antonio

    SAN ANTONIO -- It may not get the amount of attention that college basketball's March Madness receives, but for a record 37 schools and 337 clay target shooters, it is the biggest event of the year.

    The 41st ACUI Clay Target Championships kicked off today in San Antonio with the best turnout in the event's history. The tournament added seven new schools this year and saw an 11 percent jump in participation over last year's record-setting event.

    The championships will be held today through Sunday at the National Shooting Complex. Shooters will compete in five shotgun disciplines, including international trap and skeet, American trap and skeet and 5-Stand -- held in men's, women's and team divisions. Scholarships and spots on Olympic development teams will be awarded.

    ESPN U will televise the competition at future dates, with major sponsorship from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

    Sponsors of the championship include the Association of College Unions International (ACUI), NSSF, Winchester, National Rifle Association and USA Shooting.

    Colorado State University
    Eastern Kentucky University
    Fort Hays State University

    Guys,

    Two weeks ago at our home club, Powder Creek in Lenexa, KS, we hosted a collegiate shoot with many of these same schools attending. Along with a dedicated group of volunteers, I helped plan the event, but unfortunately, I was out of the country on a business trip when it happened.

    We had 136 shooters at our event, our biggest turnout ever. And, (I believe) our event is second only to the ACUI event in number of participants.

    Its a great thing to watch these kids compete.

    We had kids from:

    University of Arkansas

    Colorado State University

    Fort Hays State University

    Iowa State University

    Kansas State University

    Lindenwood University

    Purdue University

    Texas A&M University

    University of Missouri

    Missouri State University

    University of Nebraska-Omaha

    University of Wyoming

    Apologies for the formatting, I'm cutting and pasting. They use a progressive yardage shootoff system for ties, start at the seventeen yard line and move back. The final two shooters ended up at the 27. The link for the blog is: http://www.nrablog.com/post/2009/03/20/ACUI-Clay-Targets-Top-Ten.aspx

    Reading more of these blogs the mens individual order of finish listed above may be incorrect. I think Dierksen from KSU did win but the other placings are out of order. Mack Davis from SIC should be 2nd, then Scheuerman, Gilliland and Stum in 5th.

    Congratulations to Dean Dierksen of Kansas State Univ. for winning a 5 way shootoff for Men's American Trap Individual Championship after 100 straight!

    It sounds like their shoot-off format is a very interesting crowd pleaser where they move further back in increments until a winner is decided.

    Good shooting to the rest of the shoot-off participants, also. It's great to see that high level of competition at the college level.

    These aren't beginner shooters. Many of these young shooters started out shooting on 4H, SCTP, or AIM teams in their local areas in their early or mid teens. So, there's hope for many of those young shooters just starting out at that local level that shooting in college and becoming a National Collegiate Champion or shooting on a championship team is a possibility.

    Best of luck to all of the individuals and teams in the upcoming events.

    Way to go, Dean!

    I'd like to say a couple of things about this shoot. First, a hearty CONGRATULATIONS! to all the participants !!! (And a big THANK YOU to all their coaches and sponsers)!! Second, I am very disappointed by the lack of vendor support here at the Complex for these fine young ladies and gentlemen. There are only 4 vendor shops open: Winchester, Remington, Trainer Hale Supply and me . Is this shoot a big money maker for me? No. But I come every year to support the future of our shooting sports. I'm the only person here this year to help when a gun breaks down or a shooter needs a gun re-fit. So far this week I've done 7 repair jobs that kept someone shooting their primary gun. These folks would have either had to drop out or shoot a different gun than they were used to. And, beyond that, yes, I have installed a few Bump-Busters, combs and pads. What I'm trying to say is this: Vendors....it ain't always about the money you make today! Sometimes it's about doing what's right for our sport and preparing for the future......both ours and these great American young people here competing this week. Thanks for letting me rant.

    ....ooops! I looked right over Seth Scheuerman's name as #3 Men's shooter amongst the Kansas shooters on the winner's list. Congrats to you, Seth, to Jennifer Newman, as well on the ladies list & to the Fort Hays State team. Job well done. Look forward to seeing you all at the Kansas State Western Zone at Hays in May and the State shoot in June.

    Denny,

    That must be it. There could be no other plausible explanation.
