MCAC Varsity Clay Target League to Debut in Fall, 2018

The Minnesota College Athletic Conference and the USA High School Clay Target League have partnered to pioneer the first varsity Clay Target League for two-year college athletic programs. The MCAC, comprised of over 20 colleges, includes campuses in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin.

USA High School Clay Target League, based in Mendota Heights, Minnesota, is the nation's largest independent provider of high school clay target shooting sports with nearly 22,000 student athletes representing 804 high school teams in 20 states participating this spring. Minnesota has the highest participation in the League with almost 12,000 student athletes and more than 340 teams.

The fall of 2018 will represent the first varsity season of competition for ten programs in the Minnesota College Athletic Conference. The sponsoring MCAC schools (listed below) will compete in a six-week season, culminating in a season-ending event in Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

With the assistance of the USA High School Clay Target League, MCAC teams will compete each week within the league, with all teams competing at their 'home' shooting range and will have the scores tabulated virtually using USA Clay Target's 'True Team Scoring' system. Allowing teams to compete against each other without significant travel costs was a key factor in the ability to take the sport to the varsity level in only it's second year.
