FORT WORTH - The TCU women's rifle team got their season off to a strong start over the weekend with a second place finish at the Ole Miss Invite. The Horned Frogs posted a strong aggregate score, shooting a 2,313 in smallbore and a 2,348 in air rifle for a 4,661 aggregate, just seven shots behind first-place Jacksonville.

Megan Lee finished first overall in smallbore after shooting a 586. She fired a 197 in kneeling, a 198 in prone and a 191 standing. Freshman Sally Li was TCU's top shooter in air rifle, finishing fourth with a 592 (99-97-99-100-98-99).

TCU's smallbore score was the second-best among the 10 collegiate teams shooting. Li finished eighth after shooting a 579 (191 kneeling, 197 prone, 191 standing), while Hannah Black rounded out the top 10 with a 577 (193 kneeling, 196 prone, 188 standing). Catherine Green contributed a 571 (197 kneeling, 196, prone, 178 standing) to the counting squad.
