Last week, NCAA announced the teams and individual competitors selected to shoot in the 2012 NCAA Rifle Championships next week at Ohio State.
Eight teams are invited to compete in the championships. Participants are determined by adding the average of the three highest regular-season scores to the results from the designated qualifiers.
A total of 48 shooters are invited to the tournament. The first 40 come from the rosters of the eight selected teams, while the final eight are chosen by the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Rifle Committee, who look at the scores submitted from qualifiers.
The Smallbore Championships are Friday, March 9, and will be followed by the Air Rifle Championships Saturday, March 10. Overall team and individual champions are determined by the highest combined aggregate from the two championships.
