FARGO -- There's a peace returning this year for high school clay target shooters across North Dakota. A year after not having the championship weekend because of COVID-19, the three-day event returns June 18-20 at the Shooting Park of Horace. It's a tournament and sport that has grown exponentially year after year, but this year's edition might be the most special for coaches and athletes.

"There's been 1,100 shooters ever since my eighth grade year," said West Fargo junior Lucas Allen. "I can't wait to see how big it's grown ever since then."

"I was amazed at how many kids how many families from across the state were packed into this place," said Packer head coach Josh Rychener.

The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks exploded on a hot Thursday afternoon to avoid a sweep at the hands of Milwaukee, 9-0. The game was scoreless going into the fourth inning, but Leo Pina's solo home run changed the tide of the game. Ryan Flores came on in relief and delivered eight strikeouts to pick up the win.
