Army Rifle Tops North Carolina State
The No. 12 Army West Point rifle team defeated GARC opponent No. 13 NC State, 4649-4638, Saturday at the Tronsrue Marksmanship Center.
Captain Kaitlyn Kutz posted the match's highest aggregate score on the afternoon with a mark of 1175. Close behind her was cow co-captain Clayton Hanson, who had a total score of 1170.
"Clayton had a fantastic start today. Kaitlyn shot good in prone," Army head coach Web Wright said. "And a couple of the second relay shooters put some impressive personal bests forward. I hope it lights a bit of a fire for the starters."
Army topped NC State, 2304-2296, in smallbore and edged the Wolfpack, 2345-2342, in air rifle.
"We came away with a win, but we are capable of a much bigger score," Wright added. "Our sling positions were a little weak. We lose too many points in kneeling and prone. So, that's what we will work on next week." Read more.
