SCTP National Championships
Sparta, Ill. July 17-21, 2012

The 2012 Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) National Championships were held from July 17-21, 2012 in Sparta, Illinois. The disciplines available were trap, skeet and sporting clays. The event attracted 1600 SCTP athletes from across the nation.

Arizona was well represented at the SCTP National Championships with 34 of our athletes vieing for championships.

Those 34 athletes were from the Ben Avery Clay Crushers, Brophy Broncos, Mohave Top Guns, Tucson Shooting Stars and White Mountain Clay Busters. Every single athlete, parent and coach represented themselves and the state very well.


This year also marked the first year that an Arizona team has taken home a High School Division trophy. Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix has introduced shotgun shooting as a sport at the school just like any other sport. These young men actually received a letter for being part of the varsity shotgun team.The Brophy Broncos shot all three disciplines very well and received 2nd
place high-overall for the High School  Division.
