Rifle JV Beats San Francisco, Prepares for NCAA

The University of Nevada Rifle junior varsity team defeated San Francisco 2189-2040 last weekend in air rifle.  With the victory the Wolf Pack extends it’s home unbeaten streak to 18.


Wolf Pack senior Candice Noel shot 572 to lead the Pack and San Francisco was led by Katie Van Bogaert 554.


Sophomores Alexandra Johnson and Kristi McGinley took third and fourth place overall with scores of 549 and 541, respectfully. Junior Brady Phillips shot a 527 to finish fifth.


Sophomore Leah Taboada shot a 578 but competed as an individual rather than as a member of the Wolf Pack.


The next trip for the Wolf Pack will be the NCAA Qualifiers this weekend at Fort Worth, Texas.


Season Review


Led by senior Meghann Morrill, the Wolf Pack has compiled a 11-1 record this season. Morrill’s highest shot in air rifle this season was a 593 against Jacksonville State University back in October. Morrill has also shot 590 three times, twice against UTEP (Sept. 30 and Oct. 14) and once against Memphis (Oct. 28).


Freshman Jessica Klatt, in her first season for the Wolf Pack, shot no lower than 579 in air rifle. Klatt shot a season-high 583 in small bore this season. She also shot a 590 in air rifle against Air Force in November.


Junior Andrew Hickey also shot a 590 in air rifle against UTEP in November. In small bore, Hickey’s highest shot this season was a 580 twice against UTEP and Memphis.


Coach Fred Harvey said in order for the Wolf Pack to qualify for the NCAA Championships, the top three regular season scores count for one half of the sum. The other half will come from qualifying this weekend. The top eight teams will be invited to the NCAA Championships in March.
