RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State freshman Dani Foster will compete in the NCAA Rifle Championships in Columbus, Ohio, March 9-10. Foster, who became the first individual to qualify for the tournament since head coach Keith Miller did so in 1984, will participate in the smallbore competition.
"Shooting in the NCAAs is not only a reward, but a chance to shoot against the best shooters in the country," Miller said. "Competition opportunities like this are rare, so I'm thrilled that she can participate, and I'm sure it will make her an even better shooter."
Foster, who has come on strong in smallbore in NC State's most recent matches, fired a school record 580 on her way to qualifying for the NCAA Championships. She also set a new school record with her aggregate score of 1165.
Foster added the SEARC individual crown to her achievements last weekend, winning the air rifle event and leading the Wolfpack to its fifth title in six years.
Preliminaries for smallbore will begin at 8 a.m. Friday, followed by finals at 4 p.m. The competition will be held at Converse Hall at Ohio State University. An online virtual guide with information about the tournament can be found HERE.
Full results will be posted to GoPack.com following the conclusion of the match.
