The Kentucky Rifle program is No. 1 in the most recent Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association rankings released this week.
Kentucky shot the best score in the nation last weekend en route to winning the Kentucky Long Rifle Match based on an eight-shooter score. The Wildcat’s five-shooter squad score of 4718 – 2336 in smallbore and 2382 in air rifle – was a season best. That score was a point better than The Wildcats’ best score in 2017.
The fall semester ranking is based on a team’s highest score from the last weekend shot. The December 15 ranking will begin to use the three match score qualifying numbers.
Kentucky was ranked No. 3 in the preseason ranking.
