With her proud parents and other family members looking on, just after 2:00 p.m., Wiegmann signed all her official paperwork that now clears a path for the future Math major to head to Canton, Missouri in the months ahead to join the C-SC Wildcats Trap Shooting squad that’s been in existence for just a year.
Quincy High’s Trap Shooting Head Coach Skyler Wiegmann, who just happens to also be Jade’s Dad, started training his daughter from an early age, and today all the hard work, and hours of training and practice session on the range, paid off with huge dividends.
We’ll check in with Coach Wiegmann for more insight on his daughter who was in demand by several regional colleges and universities for her outstanding shooting talents. We’ll have an update from QHS.
