Randall named Athlete of the Week
Cole Randall, Merrill High School (MHS) Junior, has been named athlete of the week for the week of May 6, 2021. Cole is a member of the Merrill Bluejays Varsity Trap Team and was in the top 5 Varsity shooters thus far in the season for Merrill, coming in at number 4 with a score of 88 out of a possible 100 points as of Apr. 27. In the Apr. 20 match against the Tomahawk Claybusters, Cole was the number two scorer with 24 out of 25 points. Cole started out as a Sophomore on the Bluejays JV Trap Team. He also started shooting on the Lincoln Gun Club Trap League last year. Cole said his mom has been really supportive of his involvement with Trap as a sport.
In school, Cole particularly enjoys his tech ed classes with Mr. Svicek, working on robotics and other electronics and helping with the website for that class. He works at Chips Hamburgers, and in his free time, he enjoys playing videogames and rifle deer hunting, and is starting to get into bow hunting.
Cole is the son of Shelby Randall and David Randall, both of Merrill. After high school, Cole said he I’d love to continue Trap and would like to attend a technical college for Welding. He would also like to explore becoming a pyrotechnician to work with fireworks.
