Main Street Kansas: Students hit the range for competitive shooting in Larned

LARNED, Kan. (KSNW) - It's a high school sport that has teams competing in all 50 states. 

Now, some Kansas students get to take part. It's not track, football or tennis, it's competitive shooting. 

"We'll shoot then enter our scores online with the USA Clay Target League," explained Carson Kettelhake, shooting coach. "We'll see how many shooters we have and then they put us in conferences. So we've got 19 shooters and we may be shooting against Garden City if they have 19 shooters."

Participants go online and take a four-hour course that highlights trap shooting and all the safety precautions that go along with it. 

"I love shooting. I've done trap in 4-H. It's one of my favorite things to do," said Hunter Barker, Larned Shooting Team. 

Kettelhake shows KSN's Chief Photographer Scott Dietz how it's done in this week's Main Street Kansas.
