    The 11th-ranked Army West Point rifle team set a program record with an aggregate mark of 4,682 in its season-opener on Saturday. Despite the program feat, the Black Knights fell to Great America Rifle Conference (GARC) foe No. 2 Kentucky, which shot a score of 4,709.
    Army shot its portion of the match virtually in the Tronsrue Marksmanship Center, while Kentucky competed at their own range in Lexington, Kentucky.
    “This is a weird situation to be in,” said Army head coach Web Wright. “We set a program record, but I was expecting a higher score based on the performances we’ve seen over the last couple of weeks.”
    All of Army’s scorers in smallbore had marks above 577. Read More
