Columbus, Ohio— The 2016 National Collegiate Pistol Championships are underway and Ohio State is putting itself in position to contend for a third straight national championship.

National Collegiate Pistol Championships: Day One
The 40-shot women’s air and the 60-shot free pistol were held on Tuesday and Ohio State had a strong showing. As a whole, the team finished first in the 60-shot free event and sixth in the 40-shot women’s air. Individually, Andrianova placed fourth in the 40-shot women’s air and two Buckeyes finished in the top-10 of the 60-shot: Anthony McCollum (fifth) and Seth Bearjar (eighth).
