The Fredonia Trap Club is off to a strong start for the 2024 spring season. The team has grown to 18 students, including four young ladies.

With a larger team, Fredonia finds itself in a team conference with eight different schools. At the end of the third week of competition, the team has moved up three spots to fourth place. Scores are calculated on a weekly basis with many continuing to improve.

Fredonia’s team has six students in the top 25 for their conference in the male and female standings. Kyle Pierce is currently in second place with a 22.67 average and Mason Tomaszewski rounds out the top 25 with a score of 19.83.

The Lady ‘Billies are a force to be reckoned with so far this season, as all four are within the top 15, the most for a single school in our conference. Chelsea Pierce is in fourth place with a 16.83; Olivia Balch is in sixth place with 16.50; Lexi Wright is in eighth place with 15.33; and newcomer Peyton Wallace comes in 15th place with a 10.17 average.

The team practices on Mondays and competes on Wednesdays at the Hanover Fish and Game club on Overhiser Road, until May 29. On June 8, 15 students will be competing at the New York State Tournament in Bridgeport.
