UK Rifle Team Runs Dual Meet Record to 5-0 With Victory Over Xavier
CINCINNATI, Ohio - The University of Kentucky rifle team defeated Xavier 6164-6101 in a dual meet at Xavier University in Cincinnati.
Kentucky outscored Xavier 4635-4573 in the smallbore and 1529-1528 in the air rifle to secure the victory.
"We usually don't shoot very well on Xavier's range," UK coach Harry Mullins said. "We really performed well today. Especially with this being the first match after the Christmas break."
Owen Blakemore paced the Wildcats with a first-place finish in the smallbore and a second-place finish in the air rifle. Kentucky took four of the top five spots in the smallbore with Mike Boggs finishing third, Mary Elsass finishing fourth and David Fowler finished fifth.
UK also performed well in the air rifle by taking three of the top five spots. Elsass took third and Boggs took fifth.
The Kentucky rifle team will be back in action two weeks from now at the
Withrow Invitational at Murray State University.
