THE LEAD S QUA D SP O T L IGH T 10 PULLUSA MAGAZINE FALL 2018 CLAYS CALIFORNIA F OUNDED IN 2017, the Orland High School trap team was the first team registered in the California State High School Clay Target League (CSHSCTL). Orland is a rural California agricultural town with a population just under 7,300 that sits in the northern Sacramento Valley. Because traveling to other schools is not easy in the area, the League's online scoring and "virtual" competitions helped make the trap team a hit as soon as it launched in 2017. "Northern California is a large area ranging from valleys to high mountains," says Anna Canon, who along with husband Bruce Chapman, serve as co-head coaches of the Orland High School Trojans trap team. "Many locations have to travel at least an hour to get to their local range. If they had to travel for com- petitions, we wouldn't have any teams because these small rural schools are competing for student's time in sports and academics. This virtual league is a perfect opportunity to allow students to shoot and play other sports and keep up their grades."
