The Southwestern Community College (SWCC) sports shooting team came home with a whole lot of hardware, including the overall team trophy and a number of individual trophies, following the Simpson Storm Invitational on Sat., September 13, 2014, at the Big Springs Shooting Complex in Searsboro. Other college teams competing included Midland University from Fremont, NE, Simpson College, and the University of Iowa.
The SWCC team took home the championship trophy for high team average. To win high team average, all fifteen of SWCC’s athletes had to shoot a higher average than the entire field of athletes.
Individual winners for the day from SWCC included Ethan Jolliff, sophomore from Indianola, who took home the trophy for skeet, shooting a 23/25 and Shelby Woods, freshman from Madison, MO, who took home the trophy for trap, shooting 50/50 and winning a shoot-off against an athlete from Midland.
