The Memphis FFA Trap Team is off to a good start for their 2016 Season. The team came in 1st place at last Saturday’s match in Macon, Missouri. Senior, Lane Mohr, shot a perfect score of 50/50.  Lane was the high scoring individual out of 178 shooters. There were 42 teams from 16 schools that competed from around Missouri.  The winning team was determined by taking the top five individual scores from each school.  The top five from the Memphis Team were Lane Mohr, Jared Dunn, Luke Triplett, and Lane Pence. Conner Payne and Harley Saulmon tied for 5th.

Jared Dunn scored 3rd overall and Tala Saulmon also tied for 3rd overall in the females division, both  from the Memphis FFA Team.

The team is being coached again this year by Dave Koch.  Waltedda Blessing is their Advisor and FFA Instructor.

The Memphis FFA Team would like to invite anyone out to watch as they have their 1st home match at the Memphis Lake Show Me Shooting Range on Saturday, September 3rd.  They will also be hosting their annual fundraiser Shoot-a-thon on Sunday, September 11th at the Lake Show Me range just west of Memphis. Call Waltedda Blessing for more information or to sponsor one of the FFA shooters.  Anyone is welcome to attend and shoot at the fundraiser on September 11th.

“We are looking forward to a great season!” said FFA Advisor Waltedda Blessing.
