Tracy Stefanski started competitively shooting in 2015 in the IDPA discipline and won the 2016 Wisconsin IDPA State Championship in his division. He then took a break for 5 years to complete his Bachelor’s Degree in Management Information Systems and his Master’s Degree in Business Leadership and Organizational Development from Lakeland University.
