QHS Rifle Team awarded big donation

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Many Quincy High School programs are funded by the school, but the rifle club isn't so it's on its own to raise money.

And Thursday night, the two-time state champs received a donation of almost $3,300 from the North Side Boat Club, the Quincy Quivering Clays and friends and family of Jacob Scranton. The money was in honor of Scranton, a former member of the Quincy Rifle Team who died last year in a motorcycle crash.  Coach James Holtman says this money means a lot to his team.

"Oh this is tremendous. This is a boost in the arm for us. And in Jacob's memory we couldn't have asked for any more," he said. 

After the presentation, the team awarded Holtman a trophy for his commitment to the team as a volunteer coach.  The team will use the money to compete at nationals this summer.
