N.D. 4-Her wins national trap shooting contest

Nathan Lorenz of Ramsey County is the 2018 national champion in trap shooting.

He also led his Ramsey County shotgun team to a sixth place finish overall at the recent 2018 4-H National Shooting Sports Championships in Grand Island, Neb.

Participants in the 4-H National Championships were required to participate in 3-D, World Federation Field Archery and a half-field round of National Field Archery Association archery.

The shotgun events included trap, skeet and sporting clays. Participants earned individual and team awards for the top 10 placings in the discipline for each day and overall match awards.

The North Dakota 4-H shooting sports team was represented by competitors who qualified in the 2017 North Dakota State Championships in shotgun and archery. Each team consists of four members who compete in their qualifying discipline.

Members of the Ramsey County shotgun team were Ordale Morstad, Forrest Hanson, Nathan Lorenz and Josh White.
