Tori Kostecki enters her second year as the head coach of the University of North Georgia rifle team this year.
Kostecki, captain of the North Georgia rifle team for the four years prior to becoming the coach, has taken on the challenge of returning the intercollegiate shooting program as the head coach.
Coach Kostecki began shooting in JROTC at McEachern High School, by sophomore year she had made the Varsity team and by Junior she began qualifying for national level matches.
At the collegiate level Coach Kostecki first attended North Carolina State University where she was again on the Varsity squad. While there, she qualified for the All-Conference team and finished third overall, along with several academic awards.
After a strong year at NC State, Kostecki transferred to North Georgia and finished her degree. Kostecki’s merits while at NGCSU are many, including several National Championship invitations, making the All-Conference team all four years as a competitor, winning numerous matches and awards, and culminating in a national championship title in her senior year.
Kostecki graduated Magna Cum Laude in May 2011 with a degree in Criminal Justice with a behavioral specialization and a minor in Psychology.
