COLUMBIA, Mo. – Midland University opened the spring portion of its shotgun sports season over the weekend, competing in the Mizzou Tundra Shootout. The Warriors finished second among eight teams in the overall standings.
“It was a good match to knock some of the rust off and get the spring season rolling,” MU coach Bret Ericson said. “The team didn’t do as well as they’re capable, but we haven’t had the chance to practice a lot because of the weather.”
Cole Collier and Jack Bowman each broke 100 in trap, which tied them for high individuals, in leading Midland to a first-place finish in the category. The Warriors compiled a 490.
Canyon Ferris tied with six others for a high in skeet with a 98, but ended up in third place after the shoot-off. Midland took second in skeet with a 480.
Midland also finished second in sporting clays with an 827.
Lindenwood, which took top honors overall, was first in sporting clays and skeet, and second in trap.
The Warriors travel March 3-4 to North Platte for the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture event.
