Since 2001, trap shooting has been a club sport in high schools in Minnesota. Growth was slow at first but took off around 2009 and the number of teams and shooters has doubled each year since.
The Mounds View school district got in on the act this spring with teams at both Irondale and Mounds View. It took a few years to get approval, but now there are Knights and Mustangs representing their schools on the gun range.
