LU forms trap, skeet shooting team

May 15, 2002

One of the oldest competitive sports has become the newest sport at Lindenwood University—trap and skeet shooting.

LU officials announced recently that the school will field men’s and women’s trap and skeet teams beginning in the fall. The team will compete for the time being at Busch Wildlife before a permanent facility is constructed.

The team will be coached by Joe Steenbergen, a criminal justice professor at Lindenwood and a former St. Charles police officer. He will be assisted by Don Rayfield, retired from Proctor and Gamble and a longtime shooting professional in St. Louis, and retired Master Sergeant Terry Russell, who will coordinate ROTC involvement with the program.

“We are already getting inquiries from all over Missouri and in the west,” said Steenbergen. “There is a lot of interest. Many colleges have teams, but they don’t have the scholarships to offer like we do at Lindenwood. It really is a great opportunity for shooters.”

Steenbergen said the team will compete in the Association of College Unions International, which was founded in 1914 and is one of the oldest intercollegiate educational organizations in the country.

Lindenwood University is seeking qualified students who are interested in competing against some of the best shooters in the country. Anyone interested in the Lindenwood shooting program may explore scholarship opportunities by called Steenbergen at 636-949-4729.
