Krzyzanowski Wins 16-Yard Title at Cornhusker Trapshoot

DONIPHAN, Neb. – Zack Krzyzanowski of North Platte repeated as the 16-yard champion in the senior high division at the 46th Annual Cornhusker Trapshoot. He broke all 75 clay targets, and then later broke all 100 in a shoot-off.

While Krzyzanowski, a junior in high school, was perfect, several others were close behind. Ten other shooters shot 75s, 30 shot 74s and 68 shot 73s.

Saturday’s scores in the 75 handicap targets will be combined with Friday’s scores to determine the overall champion, the Cornhusker Cup winner.

“We’ve had great weather and shooters have taken advantage with some outstanding scores,” said Terry Brentzel, shoot director.

Sarah Villarreal of Omaha Marian shot 74 of 75 for the top girls score. Adams County 4-H had the top 4-H team, breaking 362 of 375 targets. Omaha Creighton Prep Blue had the top high school team at 363, and Omaha Marian Blue scored a 358 to win the girls’ high school team title.

On Thursday, 947 shooters competed in the junior high division; 1,585 shooters competed in the senior high division Friday.

“The meet is running well and generally ahead of schedule,” Brentzel said. “It just gets better every year. We couldn’t do this without the tremendous assistance of different divisions of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.”
