School Relents On Trapshooting Team Yearbook Decision

posted on May 2, 2017

We told you last week how administrators at Big Lake High School in Minnesota had chosen to leave pictures of the school’s trapshooting team out of the yearbook because team members were holding shotguns.

On Thursday, however, the school district modified its no-guns-in-pictures policy to accommodate the trap team.

Steve Westerberg, the school superintendent, told 5 Eyewitness News that the student handbook “doesn’t allow firearms or weapons to be displayed. This rule has been in effect since the school started sponsoring a Trap Shooting Team.” 

But after the decision was made to allow the photograph, administrators seemed to blame the problem on those who pointed out the injustice. “The intense conversation around this topic on social media and the phone calls and emails we received, only delayed the process,” officials whined in a released statement.

Good for the trap team. And “waaaa!” for the administration that couldn’t simply admit it was wrong from the start.
