Trico Enjoying Competing In Nationals
SPARTA -- The 2014 SCTP American Team National Championships were in full swing on Friday at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, Illinois. Four area teams are competing in the event, including the Trico Pioneers.
Trico has groups firing shots in the open and intermediate divisions, as well as a varsity team, who finished with a score of 455 out of 500 on day one.
"It means a lot for them to come out and compete," said Trico head coach Steve Reiman. "We have just a beautiful complex here in Southern Illinois and to just be 30 miles from here is great. We can use this and teach these kids about guns and gun safety is the main thing."
