Norris’ Hennecke wins Cornhusker Cup

Zach Hennecke lost one shoot-off Saturday in the 53rd Cornhusker Trap Shoot, but he made the next one – the one that really counted.

The Norris sophomore fought off Tanner Parrish of Lincoln Southeast in a shoot-off for the Cornhusker Cup, the shoot’s overall championship. Minutes earlier, Parrish defeated Hennecke in a shoot-off for the handicap yardage title at 24-25 yards.

It didn’t turn out to be a day to inspire confidence at the home grounds of the Nebraska Trapshooting Association in Doniphan, Nebraska. The morning was fairly calm, but afternoon brought hours of wind gusts, some up to 50 mph.

That’s OK. Hennecke wasn’t so sure of himself anyway.

“I was not very confident coming in,” Hennecke said. “I was put on a lot of lower squads all year and I knew and had to make it happen.”

Calla Behney of Duchesne got high overall in ladies, and her team took first in high overall and handicap.

Beatrice took first in high overall took high overall team and handicap team.

Defending Cornhusker Cup champion Mason Gerdes of Raymond Central shot a 63 in the handicap at 22 yards Saturday to finish with a two-day 128. The last person to win two Cornhusker Cups was Chris Schropfer in 2007 and 2009.
