Top Ranked Kentucky Rifle Outshoots Army

uk rifle1 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (1/20/14) – The University of Kentucky rifle team used a season-high 2369 in air rifle to take down No. 7 Army 4697-4655 Sunday in West Point, N.Y.

“I thought today was a good day,” UK head coach Harry Mullins said. “We struggled a little bit to open smallbore but prone was solid and most were able to get it together. We were a little off from where we were yesterday but it was still a good showing.”

Kentucky’s 2328 in smallbore helped UK to a 25-point lead after Army finished the opening event with a 2303.
 
Sophomore Connor Davis led the Wildcats in smallbore, delivering a personal-best 589. Senior Emily Holsopple wrapped up the first event with a 585, while Aaron Holsopple shot a 578 in smallbore
 
Junior Jonathan Pinkel continued his strong showing this weekend as an individual, shooting a 583 in smallbore.
 
The Wildcats sealed the win in air rifle, shooting a 2369, including six shooters breaking 590. Army recorded a season-best 2352 in air rifle.
 
“We came out of the gate very strong in air rifle,” Mullins said. “Shooting a season best in air rifle was big and it was nice to see us working hard and getting the most out of every shot.”
 
Emily Holsopple used a season-high 595 to lead UK in air rifle. Freshman Sonya May and sophomore Elijah Ellis each recorded a 592, while freshman Heather Kirby, Aaron Holsopple and Cody Manning each shot a 590.
 
“We’re getting to where we want to be and I like how we’re working as a group,” Mullins said. “Hopefully with more hard work we will move to the next level and consistently stay there. But I’m proud of how they worked and we’ll use this week to get some more work in and hopefully see some improvement from that.”
