Final Stats

FORT WORTH – Every shot mattered in the NCAA Qualifier as the No. 1 TCU women’s rifle team defeated No. 4 Air Force 4,708-4,704 to remain undefeated on the season. 

The Horned Frogs topped the Falcons by a single shot in smallbore, shooting a 2,334. Just three shots separated the two clubs in air rifle as TCU fired a match-high 2,374.

All five counters in smallbore fired scores of 581 or better. Casey Lutz was TCU’s top shooter, firing a 586 to finish second. The trio of Rachel Garner (583), Sally Li (583) and Mindy Miles (582) finished fourth through sixth. Not factoring into the team score was Barrett Ray, who tied a personal-best, shooting a 582.

TCU turned in four of the top six scores in air rifle. Garner, Li and Miles paced the Frogs with identical marks of 594. Lutz followed closely behind with a 592.

The Falcons produced the match’s top two aggregate scores as Spencer Cap turned in a 1,181 after finishing first in smallbore (587) and second in air rifle (594). Ryan Jacobs was equally as impressive with a 1,179 (583 smallbore, 596 air rifle).

TCU’s top shooter was Lutz with a 1,178 aggregate score. Garner and Li finished fourth and fifth, respectively with an aggregate score of 1,177.

The field of eight for the NCAA Championships will be announced on at 4 p.m. Wednesday. The 2016-17 National Champion will be crowned March 10-11 in Columbus, Ohio.
