Heizler makes podium again, Michek shoots first 25 straight at State SCTP Trap Championship.
Members of the S.E.a.L. Shooting Team traveled to the Wisconsin Trapshooter’s Association complex near Wisconsin Rapids on June 24 to compete in the Scholastic Clay Target Program State Trap Championships. Approximately 1500 scholastic athletes from across the state participated in the annual event, making the Wisconsin Shoot the second largest state SCTP competition in the nation.
Team S.E.a.L was led on day by Intermediate Advanced shooter Delton Heizler, who finished in 3rd place in his division with a 96/100. 2018 marks the third year in a row Heizler has made the podium at the State Championships. “Delton’s consistency is truly amazing” said Coach Nesbit of Heizler’s achievement. “Nothing rattles him. Sometimes I wonder if we should check his pulse. Making the podium three years in a row is quite an accomplishment and something he should be extremely proud of.”
More Team S.E.a.L. shooters scored 90 or better at this year’s State Shoot than any other and included Heizler’s 96, Tyler Hlavacek’s 94, Jake Fusak’s 93, and Sam Nesbit’s 90.
While Heizler’s podium finish was certainly noteworthy, the individual highlight of the event may have occurred when one of the team’s youngest shooters, Ethan Michek, recorded his first 25 straight ever at the State Shoot. Coach Nesbit said “We were all holding our breath watching Ethan shoot those last five targets. He’s such a great kid and a real credit to the team and the shooting sports. He epitomizes everything that our team and the SCTP stands for. I couldn’t be more happy for him!” Other Team S.E.a.L. shooters recording perfect rounds of 25 on the day included Jake Fusak, Delton Heizler, and Dayne Marlenga.
Team SEaL will wrap up the season July 14-21 at the SCTP National Championships, held at the Cardinal Shooting Center near Margeno, Ohio.

This was our last home game and our Dig Pink event so there was a lot of energy in the gym and the girls came out to play. I was very pleased with the attacking and net play. This was the scrappiest I’ve seen them play. My setters Taylar Bortz and Gabby McCorison both had great nights setting and digging up tips.

Taylar led the team with 4 service aces followed by Chaselyn Currier with 3.
Taylar led the team with 19 digs followed by Gwen with 17.

Sophomore Grace Wegner led the team with 11 digs followed by freshman Gwen Mccorison and Senior Gabby Mccorison with 9 each.

I was very proud of how the girls came out to play tonight. A lot of time was spent this week discussing the meaning of a team and the need to play like one in order to be successful. This was probably one of their best matches in moving and communication. As a result we were able to stay aggressive and put pressure on Mercer.

I knew going into tonight that this was going to be a tough match for my young team. The competition was great – Chequamegon played well. We struggled with blocking and covering their attacks. As a result we never were consistent in playing our game and being aggressive at the net. Communication was also an issue tonight. We were able to put a few good attacks together but not enough to stay competitive. The girls did great at the service line serving 97.5%.
Junior Taylar Bortz and Freshman Riannon Kolar led the team with 2 service aces. Sophomore Grace Wegner led the team with 10 digs and 4 kills.

The girls came out to play tonight. Communication and movement were on and they really played well as a team. This was the scrappiest I’ve ever seen them play.

We struggled with illness and came out slow but then by the second set they were playing better as a team. We knew Drummond was going to be tough and we did some great things against them and had some great attacks but we weren’t as consistent as I would have liked. This team never gave up and fought right till the end. I was very proud of them.
Sophomore Grace Wegner led the team with 3 kills. Freshman Gwen McCorison with 15 digs, and Freshman Chaselyn Currier with 3 service aces.
It was a hard fought match tonight and I’m very proud of how the girls worked together as a team to pull out the win. The teams were very evenly matched which made for an exciting night of volleyball. We had our fair share of mistakes throughout the sets but they continued to work hard and never gave up. Sophomore Grace Wegner led the team with 4 kills and Freshman Gwen McCorison led with 3 service aces. Setters Junior Taylar Bortz and Senior Gabby McCorison had a good night of setting. At times we struggled with serve receiving and they were consistent with getting the ball to our hitters for an attack.
Middle School Football
We struggled tonight coming off the long holiday weekend. Communication and movement were poor. They seemed to have forgotten how to play their game. They ended the match cleaner than they started. We do not have a JV team this year so I was able to get some of the JV players into the game and they did great.
Sophomore Grace Wegner led the night with 7 kills followed by Senior Gabby McCorison and Freshman Gwen McCorison with 5 kills each. Junior Taylar Bortz and Grace Wegner led the team with 4 service aces each. Gwen McCorison led the team with 16 digs.
Despite their early struggles this team did a lot of great things on the court and I’m excited to see what the season will bring. (Written by Coach Bortz)
