FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU rifle made the most of its home-range advantage in the NCAA Sectional meet, as the Horned Frogs swept the individual and team titles over the weekend. The TCU Purple squad won both the smallbore and air rifle competitions with the White team placing second in both disciplines. Additionally, freshman Celeste Green (Lufkin, Texas/Hewitt) earned Sectional championship crowns in both events.

The Purple squad of Green, her sister, senior Jessica Green (Lufkin, Texas/Homeschool), sophomore Alisha Fields (Plano, Texas/Plano Senior) and junior Nina Martinez (Houston, Texas/Jersey Village) totaled 4,334 points in the smallbore and 1,496 in the air rifle to earn the victories. The White squad of seniors Andy Pratt (Heidelburg, Germany/American) and Katie Swetala (Kansas City, Mo./St. Teresa's Academy) and sophomores Jess Parras (Monahans, Texas/Monahans) and Joncee Moulder (Weatherford, Texas/Weatherford) was runner-up in both events with scores of 4,148 and 1,405.

Celeste Green took home the title in both individual events, winning the smallbore with a total of 1,165 and the air rifle with 391. Also earning individual plaudits for the Frogs was Pratt, who was the high-scoring Army ROTC shooter at the meet in both events.

The Horned Frogs will now have to wait and see if their scores will qualify, either as a team or as individuals, for the 2003 NCAA Championships. The national meet will take place March 13-15 in West Point, N.Y.
