After week one of competition, the Nebraska Rifle Team ranks No. 9 according to the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association. The Huskers faced No.5 West Virginia last Sunday, Oct. 13, but fell short to the Mountaineers by a mere six points. Four Huskers came in on this week’s Top 20 scores list. In smallbore, Denise Martin tied for eighth place, Lauren Phillips tied for 11th place and Rachel Martin tied for 15th place, while Maggie Mical placed 16th in air rifle. The Huskers are off this week, but return home next week to face No. 13 Navy at the NU Rifle Range on Oct. 26.
