WVU Rifle Coach Jon Hammond brought home the hardware from the Mountaineers' 16th national championship.
The No. 1-ranked West Virginia University rifle team secured its nation-best 16th NCAA Championship, today, with a 4705 score at the 2014 NCAA Rifle Championships, at Murray State's CFSB Center, in Murray, Ky.
The Mountaineers' combined score is an NCAA Championships' record, trumping the previous record of 4700, shot by Kentucky in 2011. WVU is the first team to win consecutive NCAA titles since Alaska-Fairbanks won three straight from 2006-08. The Mountaineers last won back-to-back championships with four straight victories from 1995-98.
