Wildcats win 2012 NCAA Smallbore Rifle Championships

Kentucky Smallbore shooter at the NCAA Championships at Ohio State University

Columbus, Ohio - The Kentucky Wildcats repeated a win of the team smallbore championship yesterday, shooting a 2328 and establishing a 3-point lead over 2nd place Army in the 2012 NCAA Rifle Championships.

Last year the Wildcats came into the second day's air rifle championship with a seven point lead and held on by three to claim the school's first national championship.

Today at the French Field House Kentucky looks to hold on to a tighter lead in the air gun championship and take home a national championship for the second consecutive year.

Air gun will wrap up a couple hours earlier today since relays can accommodate more shooters and will be followed by the NRA All American banquet this evening.

Smallbore team scores, which are also the current overall standings, below.
