Twenty seven (27) Youth Athletes from the Sparta, Georgia Lake Oconee Shotgun Team are here at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, Ohio with one goal in mind! Equal or better that 2018 performance at the SCTP National Championships at the 2019 SCTP National Championships. In 2018, Team Oconee was the HOA Team for all three shotgun disciplines, trap, skeet, and sporting clays. In addition, Lake Oconee finished 4th overall in trap.
Steve Lane, Head Coach of the Lake Oconee Shotgun Team says, “our team worked very hard this season to prepare for the National Championships. Most of our athletes have returned from last year so we are heading into the Cardinal Center ready to perform at our best”.
In addition to the 27 athletes, Lake Oconee Shotgun Team has almost all the parents and even a few grandparents make the trip to support their youth athletes.
The Lake Oconee Shotgun Team has athletes from 5th grade through seniors in high school. Three of the team’s seniors are graduating this year, two of those graduating seniors will be members of the Emanuel College Shotgun Team following graduation.
