Oregon State Clay Shooting League set for biggest season yet

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Oregon State Clay Shooting League just keeps growing.

A record 53 teams, including Culver, Madras and Mountain View high schools and 978 student athletes, are participating in the 2022 spring season.

“In 2018, it began with eight students from Mountain View, and it has grown every single year," Kim Hurt told NewsChannel 21 Friday.

Hurt is in her first year coaching the Mountain View trap team. This year, the Cougars have 53 shooters. Since they are the clay shooting team in Deschutes County, it's made up of students from all over the area, from high schools like Ridgeview in Redmond and middle schools like High Desert in Bend.

Cole Hurt, Kim's son, is one of those shooters from High Desert Middle School, competing alongside kids much older than him.

“Usually, the older kids shoot a little faster, but it’s never really intimidated me," Hurt said.

The league kicks off April 17th, with the state finals happening in June and nationals in July.

    Are you insinuating that I would cheat on my beloved Alexa? Just kidding, no smart devices are allowed in my home, Big Brother is already inserted himself far up our rear cavity, no reason to make it stupid simple for them. If you want to know what my favorite color is, what I eat on Saturdays or anything else, you are going to have to ask me directly. Nothing a smart device can offer me in the way of convenience is worth my privacy.
