If he’s having a bad day, “It cheers me up. It’s a stress-reliever,” he said.

Pat Lehnherr shares his enthusiasm. His son Thomas, a 10th-grader at Holy Angels, will be on the team. Lehnherr, who’s been trap shooting since he was young, is looking forward to mentoring the group.

For him and Thomas, “it’s a great activity that both of us can do that’s not in front of the TV. We get outdoors and we have a great time,” he said. “The only thing that I can think of that comes close is golf, but trap shooting is louder.”
