Hunters got in a little early target practice at the Annual Kyle Hohmann Memorial Scholarship Clay Shoot on Saturday, which enjoyed a record day as revenues totaled approximately $11,000.
"We really had a great turnout this year,” said Debbie Coats, who helped organize the fundraiser five years ago with her husband, Pernell. "This was a record year in terms of earnings. We raised about $2,000 more than last year.”
Organized in memory of their nephew, Kyle, who was killed in a car accident, the event drew over 150 people at the Llano County Clay Busters in Llano, including 106 shooters.
Joe Brophy was the High Overall Score winner this year with a 50/50 in main event and 23/25 in 5 stand. He won a Stevens 12-gauge O/U. Gale Woefler of Arlington won the raffle gun, which was a Beretta A300 Outlander Semi-Automatic 12-Gauge.
Cash prizes were awarded to first place winners in each of the three Lewis Class scoring divisions, and a case of shotgun shells was given to second place winners.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards three college-bound seniors at Llano High School. After covering the expenses from the fundraiser, Coats said they will have approximately $8,000 to $9,000 for the scholarship fund this year.
