2,000 High School Athletes To Compete At Clay Target League National Championship

Tristan Trahern is a busy kid. The incoming Sterling High School sophomore is a Boy Scout, performs with the Sterling Miracle Players and holds down a part-time job at McDonald's. But every chance he gets, he's got a shotgun in his hands and is waiting for his turn to call, "Pull."

This past spring, Trahern was one of 24 SHS students to join the first ever Colorado State High School Clay Target League. In its inaugural year, the league had six teams in addition to Sterling's, one a six-member squad from Caliche High School. In total, there were 103 competitors statewide. The co-ed teams are open to grades 6-12.
