Led by science teacher Josh Nelson, WLHS has added another co-curricular to its offerings. The Viking Clay Breakers is a trap shooting club that's open to both boys and girls. “Anyone can do this sport. It doesn’t matter if you’re tall, short, big, or small because it doesn’t require athletic ability. Instead, it takes hand-eye-coordination, along with discipline and focus — two skills that are valuable throughout life,” says Nelson.
The season runs February through June and the Viking team competes against other area high schools, including Shoreland Lutheran, Marquette High School, Wauwatosa East, and Brookfield East.
“Many people don’t realize trap shooting is an Olympic sport and there are also college scholarships that are available for trap shooting athletes,” adds Nelson.
