The second half of the season has seen Kentucky rise, thanks in part to a slew of victories on the road this month.
Back and forth for the top rifle team ranking has been the name of the game nearly all season for the WVU Mountaineers and the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. The two squads have swapped spots several times this season thus far.
WVU and TCU remain at the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in the weekly CRCA rankings, while the Navy rifle team jumps two spots after a big win on the road against Ohio State.
West Virginia University, the Air Force Academy and the University of Kentucky are ranked one through three, respectively, according to the first CRCA poll of this season. The CRCA (College Rifle Coaches Association) rankings are determined from each team's highest score fired so far this season.
The U.S. Air Force Academy rifle team wins the 2019 air rifle title, also finishing third overall at the NCAA rifle championships in Morgantown, WV, held March 8-9. This is the first time ever that Air Force has won a NCAA championship in either air rifle or smallbore.
Texas Christian University won the 2019 NCAA smallbore rifle team championship after a wild ride
