Heading into the final week of Class 1A competition, St. Mary’s sits atop Conference 1A-3 and Shiloh is fifth.  Bismarck is third overall in Conference 1A-4 and Century is second in Conference 1A-6.  In the larger Class 2A competition, Mandan and Legacy are in fourth place in Conference 2A-1 and 2A-2 respectively. A number of MR CTL ladies shooters shore up the top 25 in female competition, including: Cassidy Lipelt (Leg, 21.0-8th); Jenna Thompson (Man, 20.6-10th); Rachel Dunlop (Cen, 19.8-19th); Alizabeth Krick (Cen, 19.1-21st) and Haley Boeder (Leg, 19.0-24th).  Bismarck’s William Gebhardt (22.8 avg) sits 22nd overall in the state boys rankings.

“We’re excited to wrap up the season and see where our great shooters end up in conference competition,” said MR CTL Coach Duane Boeder, “after that, we’ll be looking forward to state and showing what we can do on the spring’s biggest stage,” he concluded.

Formed in 2015, the ND CTL competes in a virtual format, where student-athletes log their scores at a local shooting sports facility, which are then entered into the league’s online scoring system, where teams and individuals are ranked against their competitors statewide.  This spring more than 1,600 shooters are participating on over 60 teams throughout the state.  There are 204 Bismarck-Mandan area student-athletes participating in the ND CTL under the MR CTL banner this season. Capital City Gun Club hosts all six teams in the Bismarck-Mandan area in both spring and fall leagues.

MR CTL teams are led by a staff of 30 coaches and supported by 60 volunteers who help instruct, score and supervise as part of the 2019 ND CTL spring season.  The program is funded by generous donations from local supporters including: Kupper Chevrolet, Kirkwood Scheels, MDU Resources Group, Friends of NRA, the NRA Foundation, Nodak Sportsman’s Club, North Dakota Wildlife Federation, Absolute Gun Dogs, Capital City Gun Club, Lincoln Sportsman’s Club, North American Coal Corporation, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Beazley Engineering, P.C., Double H Guns, Lexar Homes, Clifford Erickson, LLLP, Gate City Bank, Warford Orthodontics, Delta Waterfowl-Puddle Jumpers Chapter, Starion Bank, Pretty Loaded and more than 30 other area sponsors.
