Brian Lauck, NCC Head Sports Shooting Coach, said, “The weather was less than ideal for doing much of anything outside.  With rain, sleet, snow and high winds there were plenty of reasons to complain, but the NCC athletes embraced the challenging weather. After each round they came away with smiles and looked forward to the next round. The athletes and coaches would like to thank everyone for their support.”

NCC is currently recruiting students for the 2019-2020 Sport Shooting season. Coach Lauck, stated, “We are interested in talking with high school students who were active in their high school sports shooting team and are interested in continuing to compete while furthering their education.”
