INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA Men’s and Women’s Rifle Committee has announced the teams and individual qualifiers for the 2019 National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Rifle Championships.
Hosted by West Virginia University, the championships will be held March 8-9 at the WVU Coliseum on West Virginia’s campus in Morgantown, West Virginia.
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.
