COLUMBUS, Ohio – Senior Rhiann Travis picked up NRA All-America recognition for the third time in her career, receiving 2019-20 All-America honorable mention in air rifle. She was also one of eight Buckeyes to be named Scholastic All-Americans by the College Rifle Coaches Association (CRCA).
The list of Scholastic All-Americans includes: Jacobs Buchanan, Ariel Hall, Mica Harr, Joel Potts, Annabelle Stanec, Annie Tomb, Rhiann Travis and Megan Wilcoxson
“A huge congratulations goes out to Rhiann and our eight Scholastic All-Americans,” Ryan Tanoue, head coach, said. “Being recognized as an All-American is something very special and for Rhiann to be honored for the third time in her career is a truly fantastic accomplishment.
“Additionally for eight members of our team to be named Scholastic All-Americans is a great reward for our team’s hard work in the classroom. I am very proud of the effort our team has put in on and off the range this season.”
