The NCAA Rifle Committee announced the teams and individual student-athletes that have qualified for the 2018 NCAA Rifle Championships. The Citadel will play host to the championships March 9-10, at the McAlister Field House in Charleston, SC.

Schools that qualified for the championship are:
  • West Virginia
  • Texas Christian
  • Murray State
  • Kentucky
  • Alaska-Fairbanks
  • Air Force
  • Ohio State
  • Nebraska

The top eight teams in both the smallbore and air rifle events earned their championship bids based on the average of their three highest regular season aggregate scores, with each score recorded at a different range. The average of the three scores was added to the aggregate total from the team’s designated qualifier to determine the final field.

A total of 48 competitors will compete at the championships, with eight selected as individual qualifiers (see them listed below). An NCAA rule established four years ago stipulates that a school that qualifies as a team is disqualified from sending individual qualifiers.

Smallbore
  • Kestrel Kuhne, Navy
  • Lauren Phillips, North Carolina State
  • Levi Clark, Memphis
  • Joe Martin, Tennessee-Martin 

Air Rifle
  • Kamilla Kisch, Ole Miss
  • Leighton Dempster, Memphis
  • Payne Nunn, Army West Point
  • Torrance Kang, Navy

Both individual and team competitions for smallbore three-position will be held March 9, followed by air rifle on March 10. Both are 60-shot matches. The overall team champion will be determined by combining the smallbore and air rifle team totals into one aggregate score for each school.
