“Although we faced some challenges on Sunday from an overall team score perspective, there were many great individual personal and career bests during the match so I know there is a lot to be gained and built upon. We have a week off for Thanksgiving before heading to Colorado Springs for the USA Shooting Winter Air Championships, as well as a match with Air Force, TCU, and Georgia Southern. There is a lot to take time to be thankful for and this week will be a good opportunity to re-charge our batteries before the final competition of the fall portion of the season.”

Ohio State returns to action at the USA Shooting Winter Air Championships on November 30 and December 1. The Buckeyes will then compete at the US Air Force Academy against Air Force, TCU, and Georgia Southern on Sunday, December 2.
