Annapolis, Md. -- The Nebraska rifle team fired its highest aggregate score of the season in a 4,682-4,655 victory over Navy. The effort was enough to set a new season-high aggregate score for the Huskers.

These scores were Virga’s and Peterson’s second-highest smallbore scores of the season. Dacotah Faught also contributed to the effort with 578. Nina Radulovic and Emily Cheramie both brought in a solid score of 574 to round out the scoring team. Although not squadded, Kayla Gadeken fired a mark of 578, tying her second-highest mark of the season. A team score of 2,320 was enough to tie the team’s season high in smallbore.

Nebraska widened the gap in air rifle, producing a score of 2,362. Dacotah Faught led the Huskers with her second-highest score of the season (595). Samantha Peterson was close behind with 591, tying her season high with the effort.
