Associate Professor of Chemistry Aaron Amick, who also teaches the finer points of target shooting to WC’s trap and skeet team, is among the nation’s top 12-gauge Class C shooters.

Aaron Amick, associate head coach of the Washington College trap and skeet team, has been named a Class C All-America honorable mention by the National Skeet Shooting Association (NSSA).

Each year, NSSA identifies Class All-American teams for their performance in the previous shooting year. This recognition program determines teams on an objective system based on numbers only. The first requirement for eligibility is that minimum registered targets must be shot: 800 12-gauge; 500 20-gauge, 28-gauge, and .410 bore; and 300 doubles targets. Selection is based on HOA Class at the beginning of the shooting year. 

Amick’s point total checked in at 862.5, tied for 28th out of all 12-gauge Class C shooters in the country who shot the mandatory minimums in 2018.

At last week’s Blue Hen Classic competition hosted by the University of Delaware,WC won all four disciplines (skeet, trap, doubles trap, and sporting clays) and took the top spot in the overall team standings by a 106-point margin.
