Yes, there really are college level Rifle Teams! Yes, they really do offer college athletic scholarships!
Perhaps the day will come when it will be possible to watch them compete on the 2nd Amendment channel. (right next to the golf channel!)
Raleigh, N.C. — Deep inside the basement of Reynolds Coliseum, North Carolina State student-athletes are working on their shooting – rifle shooting.
NC State has the only fully-sanctioned, scholarship-level rifle-shooting team in the ACC. They are also fully coed with men and women competing against each other on a truly level playing field.
“If you look at the NCAA Championships, you’ll see roughly half men, half women,” said head coach Keith Miller. “Two years ago, TCU won the championship with an all-women’s team. First time that had ever happened.”
They may be the best team in the ACC no one has ever heard of – even on their own campus.
