Congratulations to the WildGats at the University of Arizona on their National Championship in; Rifle, Iron Sight discipline in the 2018 Scholastic Action Shooting Program College National Championships.  This is their first national championship! Our team did a fine job shooting in the Rimfire Pistol discipline, the Rifle, iron sight discipline, and the Rifle, optic sight discipline in Talladega, AL! Most importantly, our WildGats had great times training and competing with each other, sharing amazing Southern meals, and travelling in a jet and a crowded minivan together in Georgia and Alabama; many friendships with our fellow S.A.S.P. college teams were made as well! Thank you to our wonderful coaches, William Perkins and Collin Rogow, and to our others back at home for providing us with top notch, "Golden" training! "Be Safe, and Have Fun!" BEAR DOWN!
