Rifle topples No. 1 team in nation, wins fourth GARC title

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Harry Mullins' team has done it again.

The Kentucky rifle team shot school-record score of 4,696 to defeat No. 1 West Virginia on Saturday. The victory clinched the 2010-11 Great American Rifle Conference regular-season championship, the school's fourth GARC title.

The question now, with NCAA qualifying next weekend, is how good is this year's team? Mullins' squads routinely compete for the national championship, posting seven top-three finishes in Mullins' tenure, but the team has yet to actually win one. Is this the year the Cats can finally do it? How does this team compare to the ones that came so close to winning it all over the years?

I will explore some of those topics with Mullins in a feature later on in the week as the team gets ready for its national championship run.

In the meantime, check out the full details from Saturday's upset of West Virginia in a recap here. The story will be updated with quotes from Mullins later on.
