“Sunday was a fantastic opportunity to see every athlete on our team compete and we had several personal and season best performances which is great to see this late in the year. Up next for us is the Patriot Rifle Conference Championship match hosted by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. We competed in Fairbanks in October so we are familiar with the challenges that the travel distance will bring, but we are excited and looking forward to competing at the PRC Championships at Alaska for the very first time.”
