Gaston Christian School is excited to announce the addition of the Skeet Team to its 2020 Varsity Spring Sports lineup. We are excited about the opportunities that adding Skeet as a varsity sport will offer to our students, said GCS Athletic Director Tom Hawxwell. The GCS Shooting Sports team name is Holy Thunder with the inaugural captains Ben Parker, Nicolas Cochran along with officer Henry Sorrell, Treasurer and members Nick Welfare, Samuel Ellington, Grant Carter, Brandon Roche, Axe Shen, Brandon Roche, Theo Babisha, Corrie Cloninger and Josie Cloninger. The team is coached by Steve Matolka, Head Coach, with Shooting Instructors Officer Mike Robinson and David Jordan, along with assistance from parent volunteers. Our skeet team has been five years in the making and now we can proudly say we are GCS’s newest varsity sport, said Coach Matolka. Holy Thunder is open to boys and girls from 7th through 12th grades. The inaugural season lasts from March through May. I am very excited that Gaston Christian will have our skeet team participating in the competition as a high school sport. Many thanks to David Jordan, Officer Mike Robinson and especially Steve Matolka for steering us through this process said Head of School Dr. Marc Stout.
