ALTUS, Okla. — Trey Tillman III, 2020 graduate of Wellington High School, and the Western Oklahoma State College Shooting Sport Team competed in its first competition shoot, in a virtual format, and started the season off to a great start, according to the coach.
“This will be the second year to have shooting sports on campus, and we are so excited to see what all they accomplish,” said Coach Jerimy Pence.
The team competed in the ACUI Summer Series Virtual Shoot. The members competing were able to shoot at their local range over a couple of days to gather the scores to enter into the competition.
Once everyone had shot, which was a total of 100 shots per event, the scores were sent to ACUI. The team shot 100 Trap, 100 Double Trap, 100 Skeet and 100 Double Skeet. That was a lot of shooting over a short couple of days, but the results definitely were definitely worth it, Pence said.
Seven of Western’s men’s team placed in the top 15, with five placing in the top 10. Hunter Pence was the big winner of the event, placing first high overall male, winning $3,000 for the team’s MidwayUSA Foundation account.
Western’s only female, Ally Angelly, placed second place in overall female.
Also, among the top high overall male scores on the team are Cole Wagner, fourth; Baylor Downing, sixth; Gavin Sirmons, seventh; Jaden Lingle, eighth; Koby Bates, 11th; and Darren Lucas placed 15th.
“We are excited to watch them compete this season,” said Pence.
