DONIPHAN — Shooters faced a high level of difficulty during Saturday's final day of competition at the 44th annual Cornhusker Trapshoot.
For starters, the cold, windy weather conditions may have been the worst in all the years of the event.
Secondly, the number of competitors rose to a record-high 2, 253 participants to make it the largest school trap shoot competition in the world. About 1,500 of those competitors were in the high school division.
With that said, the Hastings 4-H team put together an impressive weekend. After winning the 16-yard championship Friday in the 4-H division, the team battled the elements and won the top overall 4-H team for the second consecutive season with a cumulative score of 655 out of 750 targets — one better than the Karp and Krow 4-H'ers.
