Posted: Oct 19 2023

WILLISTON, N.D. – The Minnesota College Athletic Conference (MCAC) Tournament was held in Alexandria, Minnesota, and Williston State College (WSC) is delighted to announce a spectacular victory. One of our trap shooters, Clay Ceynar, won first place with a perfect score of 100/100, making him the only shooter to accomplish this extraordinary achievement. Another achievement was Grantlee Hoffman with a 50/50. The WSC trap shooting team, who competed against 14 other teams, earned sixth place overall thanks to their remarkable performance.

The incredible commitment, talent, and tenacity of our trap shooting athletes at Williston State College are evident in this extraordinary accomplishment. The shooter's flawless performance is evidence of their undying dedication and endless hours of practice.

" All of the coaches for the WSC trap team are extremely proud of the performance these athletes had at the MCAC tournament. The weather was perfect, and our performance was outstanding as each of the athletes, who took part performed very well.  All the coaches; I, Robert Blanton, Tyler Hess, and manager, Tara Blanton appreciate all the hard work these athletes have given throughout the season, and for the support of Williston State College for our program.  To come away with a conference champion in Clay Ceynar topped off a good season for the Tetons,” said WSC Clay Target Head Coach Penny Slagle.

The fact that WSC finished sixth in the MCAC Tournament despite stiff opposition from 14 university teams is a credit to their tenacity and competitiveness.

This accomplishment also emphasizes North Dakota's strong presence in a Minnesota conference. First prize went to North Dakota State College of Science (NDSCS), while second place went to Bismarck State College (BSC). The impressive performance by Williston State College enhances its standing as a serious contender in the MCAC.

WSC expresses appreciation to all members of the college community as well as to sponsors and supporters for their steadfast support. Without the combined efforts of the WSC community, our trap shooting squad would not have been as successful
