107th Westy Hogans
September 5-7, 2014
Elysburg, PA

The 107th Westy Hogans....................

is now history. Shooting in perfect weather, 829 shooters faced the Star traps for the last time. Next year the PSSA will install all new PAT traps. Targets were up in all 5 events over last year.

Michael Lipetz of Kensington, CT broke 200 to secure the singles title. Greg Presson of Schwenksville and Mark Invidiato of Basking Ridge, NJ also turned in perfect scores. Michael Blaisdell of Keen, NH turned in the only perfect 100 to win the twin bird crown. Blaisdell owns this club. Harlan Campbell Jr. of Tribune, KS won the Handicap title with a 98 from 27 yards. Harlan is a 19 time All American and the current team captain. Paul Kozemko of Mountain Top, PA and Eugene Patrick of  Grassflat, PA also had 98's. Campbell also secured the HAA and also defended his HOA title. Debbie Ohye Neilson won her 9th Lady of America title while winning seven awards, including the Lady I HAA and HOA titles. She also won the Lady I doubles crown. Richard Shaffer of Windber and Kay Ohye tied for the Westy Hogans Challenge with 193x200. Shaffer took the trophy by forfeit. Lisa Long won the Lady II HOA while Kim Bateman won the Lady II HAA. Christian Koerbler of Germansville, PA won six Sub-Junior awards while Ian Darroch of Aliquippa, PA won 6 Junior Gold titles. Flashback to the state shoot when Ian won 15 times.

After the singles championship on Saturday the PSSA held a reception for Chuck and Becky Fritzges. Chuck was the long time shoot manager for all the PSSA shoots at Elysburg. Becky was a PSSA cashier. Both had a combined 80+ years of service for the PSSA.

 

The 106th Westy Hogans....................

was a huge success. ATA shooters from 19 states shot at 314,300 targets, up 51,100 targets from a year ago. Every event saw an increase in entries from last year. All three days supplied perfect shooting weather. Harlan Campbell, the ATA Hall of Famer and 18 time All American (including 7 captains selections) from Kansas, won three of the five major shooting events (singles, doubles, HOA) in the first Westy Hogans owned and run by the PSSA. After 105 years the old Westy Hogans industry group disbanded in January of this year. The HAA was secured by Robert Malmstedt of New Jersey. This was his 9th major Westy Hogans title, including his third HAA. He also won the Westy Hogans Challenge, his fourth. In a huge surprise, 18.5 yarder James Gontar of Northampton broke 100 straight to lead the field in the championship handicap Sunday afternoon. His 100 straight was the first at the Westy Hogans since 1952, 61 years ago. It is also only the second perfect score in Hogans history. In 1952 George Granger of Flemington, NJ broke 100 at Asbury Park, NJ.
