Currituck County 4-H Sharpshooters team member Tucker Melton has been selected to represent North Carolina as a member of the four person NC State Rifle Team. Melton will compete with the team at the National 4-H Shooting Sports Tournament in Grand Island Nebraska, June 24-29, 2019. Melton was an alternate on last year’s Rifle team and has traveled to Ellerbe monthly in order to practice with the state rifle team.

Melton has been a member of the Currituck County Sharp Shooters 4-H Club since its inception and competes both individually and as a member of the senior rifle, shotgun and small bore pistol teams.
