Boehme takes second in German shooting competition

Wiesbaden’s Daniel Boehme, 16, took home the silver medal at the German national clay-pigeon championships conducted Aug. 17-18 in Dornsberg, Germany, according to his parents Mike and Sharon Boehme.

Boehme shot in the juniors’ category for competitors younger than 21 and knocked down 159 of 200 clay pigeons, one bird behind the top finisher. Boehme was one of 10 competitors in the under-21 category and the only American competing in the event.

The former Wiesbaden High School student, who is moving stateside later this month, improved on his bronze medal performance at last year’s German national championships.
