National Championship on the line in today's rainy NRA Intercollegiate Rifle Club match

2014 NRA Intercollegiate Air Rifle Championship at Fort Benning, Georgia

Columbus, Georgia - Competitors are at the line for the NRA Intercollegiate Rifle Club Championship's second and final match, Air Rifle.

Another 60-shot match, this time competitors trade in their .22 rifles for compressed air power. Also unlike the Smallbore Championship, all shots are taken from the standing position.

Michigan enters the day with a comfortable 60-point lead over North Dakota State University and, barring an upset, looks to take their third national championship trophy back to Ann Arbor.

Last year's Air Rifle Championship saw Michigan shooter Ying Yi Liu post her first clean 100 and take the Air Rifle title with a 575. The Wolverines will need another strong performance by Liu to help secure their national championship as North Dakota State University and its top shooter Brandon Godbout try to leap into first.

Today's shooters are also happily dry in the Pool Indoor Range as the skies above Columbus, Georgia, have opened up and a heavy thunderstorm plans to sit on top of the championship all day.

Once the Air Rifle Championship wraps up it's straight to this afternoon's awards ceremony, where the team and individual winners will be announced. In the meantime, enjoy some shots from the firing line.
