More Panthers than ever are taking a shot at trap

It’s been a great spring so far for the Glencoe-Silver Lake trapshooting team. Numbers are up, both score-wise and as far as participation, and coach Doug Fegley could not be happier. 
“We’re really getting things on track,” he said. “Things are going real well.”
The Panthers are in the midst of their 2015 season. The squad competes at the Winthrop Game Protective League, and the clubhouse is fuller than ever this season. 
Fifty-two participants joined up this spring, including 13 girls. Those numbers are up from the program’s inception in 2013, which featured 30 boys and three girls. In 2014, there were 43 total participants, seven of which were female.  This year’s team features 12 seniors and 10 seventh-graders.
“It’s growing and growing,” Fegley said. “There’s 8,355 kids in Minnesota now participating, up from 6,020 last year. It’s gotten huge.”
