The Martin Methodist Clay Target team recently added two more titles to its cabinet as Caleb Lindsey and Emma Williams finished first and second at the USA Shooting National Championships for Shotgun earlier this month.
Lindsey, a senior from Spring Hill, finished runner-up a year ago, but took home the gold medal this year and was named USA National Men’s Trap Champion.
With the victory, Lindsey earned the right to join the Team USA National Team for a second straight season.
“Winning the USA Shooting Nationals and earning a spot on Team USA’s National Team has been a dream of mine since I first started shooting International Bunker,” Lindsey said. “Being a part of the Clay Target Team at Martin Methodist has allowed me to pursue my dreams during the academic school year. Without the support of my professors, my coach, and teammates this dream may not have been possible”.
Williams, a sophomore from Savannah, took home the silver medal after she finished as a bronze medalist two years ago.
Williams’ runner-up finish was especially impressive considering that it came among a star-studded field that included six-time Olympic medalist Kim Rhode as well as two-time medalist Corey Cogdell-Unrein.
Next, the RedHawks will take-off to the SCTP Nationals in Marengo, Ohio where they are poised to defend their National Titles.
