MR CTL Mixed w Kupper2 copyThanks to generous contributions by sponsoring area businesses and sportsmen’s groups, the Spring 2019 season cost is just $250.00, with participants providing their own 12- or 20-gauge shotgun, safety glasses, shell holders and ear protection. Participants will enroll and pay at the meetings above; $220.00 by check to MR CTL, and $30.00 by credit card online to the ND CTL for league registration.  Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of their hunter’s education number with them to registration.

In its third year, the Missouri River Clay Target League (MR CTL) serves as the parent organization for the six area schools’ participation in the rapidly-expanding ND CTL with a staff of 25 coaches and 55 volunteers and the facilities at CCGC serving as the backdrop for the pursuit of safe, fun and marksmanship-oriented competition in the state league, now entering its fifth year.

“After a year of incredible growth, we are excited to see these young area shooters establish themselves and to bring new participants into the fold,” said MR CTL Volunteer Coach Nick Simonson, “there is high demand for this program and we expect to hit our cap of 240 student-athletes this spring, with more than 180 returning shooters slated for the season,” he concluded

Last year, more than 1,400 North Dakota high school students participated in the spring league, and it is anticipated that over 2,000 will compete in the coming season on more than 60 teams statewide. The only travel required, other than to the nearby CCGC facility, is the ND CTL State Championship in Horace, N.D. on June 15 & 16. For more information on the ND CTL, visit ndclaytarget.com.

Unlike sports such as baseball, where the tenth best player sits on the bench, every student athlete gets to shoot each week and measure their progress against all other athletes in their conference. The popularity of CTL has grown so rapidly in part because it provides an alternative outdoor sport in which everyone can participate and boasts a flawless safety record.  Since its beginning, there have been zero injuries in CTL practices and competitions over 18 years and more than 70,000 participants.

“If last year’s impressive individual performances, with multiple spring and fall medalists and conference champions, and great team showings, including Century’s fall conference title are any indication, Spring 2019 is going to be a breakout season for these young programs,” Simonson commented.

In addition to attending the sign-up and informational meetings, parents can enroll their youth, or learn more about the teams by calling Simonson at (507)829-9553 or emailing mrctl25@gmail.com.  For more on MR CTL and the teams’ recent successes, bookmark mrctl.org.

“When you start to see scores pile up in the high 40s, it’s evident the kids are finding their form, seeing the targets, and hitting their stride,” said Coach Eric Thompson, “across all six schools, the participants are peaking at just the right time,” he concluded.

The overall average for all six schools improved to 34.4, up 2.2 targets from League Week 3, and 60 shooters posted at least one round of 20 or more, a season high.  In Conference standings, Shiloh rises to second and Bismarck is fifth in Class 1A-2 out of 8 teams.  St. Mary’s moves up to fifth out of eight teams in Conference 1A-3 and Century jumps to second in the eight-team Conference 1A-4.

MR CTL teams are led by a staff of 25 coaches and supported by 55 volunteers who help instruct, score and supervise as part of the 2018 ND CTL spring season.  The program is funded by generous donations from local sponsors including: Presenting Sponsor Kupper Chevrolet, Kirkwood Scheels, Delta Waterfowl-Puddle Jumpers Chapter, Nodak Sportsmen’s Club, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Absolute Gun Dogs, Starion Bank, Lincoln Sportsman’s Club, Lexar Homes, Pretty Loaded, Warford Orthodontics, Lewis & Clark Wildlife Club, Wallwork Truck Center, Pheasants Forever-Lake McKenna Chapter, Advanced Business Methods, Entzel Trucking, RMS TriTec, Houston Engineering, Action Motor Sports, Double H Guns, Angie Sersha, Dakota Community Bank, iGear, Bobcat of Mandan, Central Dakota Strutters-NWTF, and Mandan Sporting Goods.

“We had some great shooting today,” said Volunteer Coach John Paczkowski, “but it was more a function of the continued improvement of these dedicated participants than the nice weather,” he concluded.

Across the six schools, the overall average improved to 32.2, up 3.3 targets from League Week 2, and 47 shooters posted at least one round of 20 or more, a season high.  In Conference standings, Shiloh sits third and Bismarck is fifth in Class 1A-2 out of 8 teams.  St. Mary’s comes in sixth out of eight teams in Conference 1A-3 and Century is third in the eight-team Conference 1A-4.  Legacy checks in at fifth overall in the larger Conference 2A-2, while Mandan is sixth.  On his 100-straight in the last two weeks of competition, Howard rises to third place in the state individual rankings with a league average of 24.5.

In total, 180 shooters between the six Bismarck-Mandan area high schools are competing in the ND CTL spring season. Formed in 2015, the ND CTL competes in a virtual format, where student-athletes log their scores at a local shooting sports facility, which are then entered into the league’s online scoring system, where teams and individuals are ranked against their competitors statewide.  This spring
