Fell too far behind in the smallbore to make up the difference. Still a good year for the rifle team.0March 14, 2018 at 8:02 am #55130
This has to be what Alabama feels like when it doesn’t win the football national title.
WVU Shot a 2327 in smallbore – it’s season low by six and about 15 below its season average. Just a bad day to have a bad day.0March 14, 2018 at 10:00 am #55137
the streak is broken. When you’re this good, these kids must feel like someone just sucker punched them. This team will be good again next year with Gratz being the only SR.0
