Local Trap Team celebrates year of big wins
Lincoln County Trap Team had a winning year with numerous awards at regional, state and national tournaments.
The team would not have been capable of participating and being so successful without wonderful volunteer coaches and generous sponsors, organizers said.
The coaches, Mark Horton, Kevin Tanner, Ken Counts, Kay Counts and Larry Boyett, encouraged high character, good sportsmanship, and parent participation. The coaches also trained shooters and oversaw range safety to ensure one of the safest sports in existence.
