The fifth annual Shoot for the Stars Marksmanship Tournament kicked off on July 18, with the team from Energy Workforce Member Company Caterpillar, Inc. winning first place. The event brought together participants with a wide range of shooting experience for competition at Athena Gun Club.

Energy Workforce Board Vice Chair, Scott Livingston, President – Intervention & Stimulation Equipment, NOV Completion & Production Solutions, kicked off the tournament and highlighted that the event supports Energy Workforce’s advocacy efforts.

“Through the advocacy efforts of Energy Workforce & Technology Council, we are educating people across the country, as well as policymakers, on the benefits of U.S. energy. To increase innovation in the sector and build our workforce, we need our nation’s leaders to work with us, not against us,” Livingston said. “Your support today allows Energy Workforce to tell the story of the sector in Washington, DC and in all of the states where our sector operates.”

Competing in rotations through three bays, Caterpillar’s team placed first with a score of 1,130: Team members included Matt Morse, Derek Kamp, Phil Heisch, Connor Winn and Brantley Abrams. Matt Morse also had the highest individual score.

SLB’s team followed in second place with a score of 1,125: Team members included Advisory Board Member Bruce Miller, Mike Croissant, Sloan Diaz, Ben Rebstock and Nick Tran.
