Peterson Named Second-Team All-American

By NU Athletic Communications

Samantha Peterson was honored for her performance this season after being awarded second-team All-America honors from the NRA in smallbore.

This marks the second time that Peterson has been named an All-American after earning Honorable Mention honors for smallbore in 2017. Peterson is poised to have an outstanding senior season next year as the only returning All-American on the Nebraska rifle team.

Peterson led the team in smallbore this season with an average of 580.53. She shot her season high (584) four times (Kentucky, West Virginia, Akron, Navy). The achievement was one point short of her career best.

The Nebraska rifle team ended their 2018-2019 season on Mar. 9 when Hannah Virga competed individually at the NCAA Championships in Morgantown, W. Va.
