COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — An Eastmont High School junior skeet shooter earned a gold medal last week in a training camp for Olympics-aspiring firearms competitors. Alex Nelson, 17, of East Wenatchee earned a gold medal for shooting down 44 out of 50 clay targets hurled to a 66-meter distance at the Scholastic Clay Target Program’s Junior Olympic Development Camp, held Memorial Day weekend in Colorado Springs, Colo. The silver and bronze went to the next highest scores of 43 and 42. Nelson fired with an over-under 12 gauge shotgun.
