The CCHS ROTC Rife Team is preparing to compete at the JROTC Regional Championships in Arizona February 5th through the 9th. The team has been preparing for this tournament since August and they hope to qualify for the National Championships this year.
Coach Sergeant Paul Vertrees has been coaching the rifle team for 19 seasons and this year’s team they won the League Championship. Last years team took 3rd place at State. According to Sergeant Vertrees, everyone on the team contributes equally to the success of the team since if one shooter has a bad day the team score suffers. Team members this year are Riley Mills, Daesha Mills, Will Pushchak, Tate Rutherford, and Coach Sergeant Vertrees. Good luck to the Tigers as they represent our community and school!
