The team, dating back to 1893, will compete this year against MIT, the United State Military Academy and the United States Coast Guard Academy. The team is captained by Maj. Andrew Clark and coached by Rick Kamp and they are working to increase private funding so that the team can become more competitive.

The Scholastic Shooting Trust was formed to provide funding for shooting sports education in traditional public and private high schools, colleges and universities, so that participating students can improve their confidence, discipline and leadership skills. Alumni, families of team members and community members fund the grants through donations to the Scholastic Shooting Trust so that youths have a better opportunity to compete in the shooting sports. The Trust (www.scholasticshootingtrust.org) is a mission of the MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc. started by Larry and Brenda Potterfield in 2007 to support education in shooting sports, hunting, firearms safety and outdoor skills.
