Scholastic Action Shooting Program National Director, Rick Leach is proud to name Madeline Maggard as a new Texas State Advisor for SASP. Madeline joins Harold Carter as State Advisors, serving over thirty SASP youth shooting teams in the Lone Star State.
Madeline selflessly dedicates much of her time to youth shooting sports. As an educator at Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, Madeline is also the head coach of the Jesuit Competitive Shooting Teams, which participate in both the SCTP and SASP youth shooting sports programs. “Madeline has also been serving as a SCTP state advisor but as a competitive pistol shooter herself, we recognize where her passion is,” said Leach.
“I’m excited and honored to join SASP’s great team of like-minded enthusiasts and share my passion for advancing the sport of youth shooting,” exclaimed Maggard. “I’m a pistol girl myself and love shooting steel alongside my athletes! Let’s be loud and proud, y’all!” Maggard loves to compete with her Glock in GSSF matches but also competes with rimfire divisions.
SASP’s State Advisors throughout the country work diligently to both assist current teams and expand participation in their respective states. “Someone recently asked me why some states have or need more than one state advisor,” Leach reflected. “Wisconsin has historically been the largest participating state in the SASP program and has two state advisors. Texas is currently number two in SASP but has four times the land area that of WI at five times the population at, 29 million residents. Based on those stats, Texas should be the largest participating SASP state. With that land area, we definitely need more than one state advisor to spread the word about the SASP in Texas.”
