Coharie Shooting League holds October trapshoot
Two earn highest ever handicap scores
by Mac Herring Contributing writer
Fourteen trapshooters faced one another at the Coharie Shooting League’s Oct. 12 competition. Contestants fired at 100 16-yard targets and 100 handicap targets where the contestants stand further away from the traphouse.
In the singles event, Mac Herring broke 49 of the first 50 targets with fellow competitor Al Williams breaking 45. Williams smashed the last 50 straight for a final score of 95 but could not quite catch Herring who finished with a 97 to lead all shooters.
Brian West from Newton Grove had a 94, junior shooter Dane Westbrook finished with a 90, and Glenn Alford from Zebulon had a 95.
In the handicap event, Herring took top honors with a score of 98 which tied his best ever score in a handicap event and earned him one yard, pushing him back to shoot from the 26 yard line. Jerry Kinlaw from Goldsboro and Alford both had scores of 94. This 94 was the highest ever score for Kinlaw in handicap. Williams now has an advantage over Herring in handicap because he is closer and plans to beat him at the league’s next event.
The high-over-all honor was captured by Herring with an impressive 195 out of 200 score.
