David's Trip to Represent USA

My name is David Wilkinson and I am a sophomore cadet at The Citadel. I was introduced to competition shooting during my freshman year of college and excelled. I qualified for National Junior Olympics and Intercollegiate Nationals.  I placed 2nd in the Free pistol event after shooting a team high score for the year. The following summer, I competed in the U.S. National competition and placed 1st Junior in Standard pistol, 3rd Junior in Free pistol, 1st Class B Standard Pistol, 1st Class B Rapid Fire pistol, and 1st Class B Sport pistol. I qualified to represent the USA in Granada, Spain during the World Championships and competed with Team USA. Returning for my sophomore year of college, I became the Vice-President for the college team and again qualified for Intercollegiate Nationals. I was part of the teams to take 3rd in Free and 3rd in Air pistol as well as 2nd team overall. I received All-American in Standard pistol, Free pistol, and Air pistol and was offered a spot on the USA World University Games team. This summer will be the last year shooting events are offered in the World University Games so this is once in a lifetime. I must raise funds to travel to Gwangju, South Korea for the competition. Any help is appreciated.
