Oct. 17, 2012
RALEIGH, N.C. - The NC State rifle team maintained a spot in the top-20 in the latest installment of the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association's rankings. The Wolfpack opened the 2012-13 season ranked 18th in the poll and was ranked as high as 11th in the poll preceding the latest ledger.
"We're now 14th, which is accurate, and we will fight to maintain or advance that ranking," said head coach Keith Miller.
The Pack is 6-2 overall this season, including a 5-0 SEARC mark and an 0-1 standing in GARC contests. The team was victorious and swept the SEARC #1 meet to open the season, but dropped a pair of close matches in Lincoln, Neb., against Nebraska and Alaska-Fairbanks.
NC State returns to action Saturday, Oct. 20 at SEARC #2 in Milledgeville, Ga.
