INDIANAPOLIS--- The NCAA Men’s and Women’s Rifle Committee has announced the teams and individual qualifiers for the 2018 National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Rifle Championships.
Hosted by The Citadel, the championships will be held March 9-10 at the McAlister Field House on The Citadel campus in Charleston, South Carolina.
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.

A total of 48 competitors will compete in the championships, with 40 competitors coming from the top eight teams selected. The remaining eight competitors were selected based on the scores submitted from the designated qualifier.
