Thanks for visiting our website! Whether you are here looking for more info on the team, or just buying a shirt from the team shop, you're helping the UK Shotgun Team continue our tradition. In just a few short years, we've grown from a small club of four members to one of the premiere clubs on Kentucky's campus. Still, we are one of the most dynamic, and fastest growing clubs on campus with the second largest budget of a club sports team at UK. This is in no small part due to the contributions of not only our dedicated team members, but also a generous and supportive community.
We are an entirely student-led organization, dedicated to the promotion of shotgun sports to people of all ages. Any student at UK, as well as students from nearby schools with no shotgun team, are welcome to participate with the UK Shotgun Team, regardless of what your experience level is. In fact, many of our best shooters had never fired a gun before joining the team. We also have a varsity squad that travels to several meets at other schools each year to compete, including the ACUI National competition in San Antonio, Texas.
The team has earned several accolades over the years. We were the most improved team two years ago at ACUI nationals, notching top ten finishes in across the board in all events. Three years before that, Kevin Parrott won the ESPNU 5-Stand Shootout on national television. We've also been in the Kentucky Kernel multiple times. In 2014 the team placed 5th over all in Division 2 at nationals and we hope to continue our success this year with our most competetive varsity squad yet! This year, our team moved to division 3 at ACUI Nationals and placed fourth overall in a very competitive division.
