Texas Christian University moves into lead for team championship

2013 NCAA Smallbore Championship winner Petra Zublasing of West Virginia University

Columbus, Ohio - West Virginia senior Petra Zublasing became this year's smallbore champion at the NCAA Rifle Championships after a hard fought final at Ohio State University's Converse Hall.

Shooting a 589-35x earlier in the Smallbore Championship, Zublasing began the eight-man final just behind University of Kentucky's Henri Junghanel who had edged her with a 589-36x.
