Week 6 of the Virginia Youth Trapshooting League (VYTL) ended on 5/3/15 with 27 youth trap shooters competing at Winchester Gun Club, IWLA – Arlington Fairfax, and IWLA – Lynchburg. The race for high gun honors has tightened considerably and will be determined in the final week of the league. At the end of Week 6, Junior Christopher Hise (IWLA-Flight Control) 92.50, Sub Junior Camden Newlin (Frederick County 4-H) 92.00 and Junior Robert Judy (Frederick County 4-H) 90.80 are leading the league.
**In order to qualify for end of year awards, shooters must complete 6 out of 7 shoots and only their best 6 shoots will count. These averages include all scores shot to this point – the “dropped” week has not been excluded.**

About the Virginia Youth Trapshooting League:
The VYTL is a 7 week competition with each shooter’s best 6 scores counting towards end of season awards and bragging rights. Shooting will continue through May 10th with the season culminating on May 16th at the Virginia AIM Trap Shooting Championships in Lynchburg, VA.
A newly formed high school trap shooting league for any shooters up to 22 years of age, shooters from throughout Virginia were able to compete at their local clubs and have their scores compiled with their peers from other parts of the state. This new format is very exciting and gives each participant a way to test their skills against a larger than normal pool of competitors each week.
