They are in thick of their second season. And students are having a great time already.

“It’s different than other sports. You don’t have a bunch of people yelling all around you. You have to get in the zone,” Gabby Gallay, an 8th grader, shared.

“I like shooting guns. It’s like, a stress reliever,” Lily Dasovich, an 8th grader, told us.

The Nashwauk-Keewatin trap team started last year, and had seven members.

This year, they’ve grown to 27, and include a few kids from Greenway.

“I think a bigger team makes it more fun. You have more people to interact with,” added Samantha Oles, a junior.

Another junior, Olivia Nagler, said, “There’s more people, more competition. Which makes it more fun.”

Jazlynn Svaleson, who graduated last spring, is coming back to help. “Not only is it different than other sports. You also get to perform as a team, and as an individual. And you get to be outside, instead of in a gym.”

Their coach, Gary Horack, said, “They just want to shoot more and more. And I couldn’t be happier with the group of kids.”

Horack said they are grateful for the help of the Hibbing Trap Club, which is where they practice.
