Local students take aim in trap shooting league

Ashley Doerzbacher took her turn trap shooting with the team from Palmyra-Macedon High School.

Newark, N.Y. -- A group from Palmyra-Macedon High School is among 19 teams competing in the New York State High School Clay Target League.

The spring trap shooting season began April 2 and runs through the state tournament in June.

The league includes seven local schools: Pal-Mac, Holley, Dundee, Penn Yan, South Seneca, Attica and Marcus Whitman.

Ashley Doerzbacher spent the morning with the Pal-Mac team at its "home field" at the Newark Rod & Gun Club. She learned all about how the team came together, what safety measures are in place, and even took a turn at shooting.
