Currituck County 4-H Sharpshooters team members Kaitlyn Carey and Bode Fredrick have been selected to represent North Carolina as members of the 4 person, NC State University Rifle Team. Bode and Kaitlyn will compete with the team at the National 4-H Shooting Sports Tournament in Grand Island Nebraska on June 21-26, 2020. Kaitlyn and Bode were alternates on the 2019 N.C. 4-H National Rifle team and traveled to Ellerbe, NC monthly in order to  practice with the State Rifle team. This achievement is a testament not only to these competitors’ high level of dedication and commitment, but also that of their 4-H Club Leader, Kathy Melton, and Coaches Malcolm Murray, Jason Fredrick and Eric Brinkley.
