Official rifle selections announced
INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Men’s and Women’s Rifle Committee has announced the teams and individual qualifiers for the 2014 National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Rifle Championships.
Hosted by Murray State, the championships will be held March 14-15 at Pat Spurgin Rifle Range and CFSB Center on the Murray State campus.
The top eight teams in both the smallbore three-position and air rifle events were selected based on the average of the three highest regular-season aggregate scores with no more than one match at any given site. The average of the three highest scores was added to the aggregate scores from the designated qualifiers to determine the top eight teams.
