With 17 student athletes on his team, Coach John Singer heads this squad as part of the fastest growing high school sport in Michigan. The USA Clay Target Shooting Team joins teams from Harbor Beach and Sandusky as they embark on their first season. The team which holds its practices and competitions at Gateway Sportsman Club every Wednesday after school from 4-7 p.m., is also instructed by Co-Coach Guy Hill and Doug Elston who serves the Range Safety Officer.

Coach Singer, a retired associate professor of chemistry at Jackson College, who is certified as a Michigan Hunter Safety Instructor and in Coach Leadership and Safety Support (CLASS), held a parent/athlete informational meeting in January and was met with support and enthusiasm for this new team. Coach Singer competed in shooting sports in college, and has studied gunsmithing as well as studied under Olympic shooting coach Dr. William Christy. Financial support in the way of supplies has come from Gateway Sportsman Club, who have donated ammunition and targets and $40 in food to feed the hungry students, and the Ace Hardware store in Sebewaing is providing safety equipment and building paper for patterning shotguns.
