NICC Sports Shooting team member Kaylie Klimesh has earned statewide recognition as the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference Athlete of the Week in recognition of her back-to-back 96 and 97 scores in competition.
"I was very surprised when I found out that I was named Athlete of the Week. My favorite thing about competing with our NICC team is being able to have fun and not make the competitions about winning. I also like being able to compete with cool teammates," Klimesh said.
The NICC athlete developed her trapshooting skills through many years of practice and persistence. Her goal is to become a very competitive shooter. "My father was also my head coach throughout my high school career, so he pushed me to become better; without him pushing me, I wouldn't be as competitive as I am today," she added.
