NCAA RIFLE CHAMPIONSHIP
The No. 4-ranked Kentucky rifle team won the
2018 NCAA National Championship, held at the
Citadel's McAlister Field House, with an aggregate
score of 4717. This is Kentucky's second-ever
national championship win since winning the rifle
championship in 2011. This victory marked the end of a

DAISY BB GUN CHAMPIONSHIP
Daisy has begun
preparations for the 2018
Daisy National BB Gun
Championship, to be held
June 30-July 3 in Rogers,
AR. This event brings together youth teams ages 8-15
to shoot standing, kneeling, sitting and prone. Titles are
awarded to both teams and individuals.
Teams competing in the 2018 Daisy Nationals qualify
by placing in the top three at an NRA-sanctioned state
championship match. In addition to marksmanship
scores, each shooter takes a written test covering gun
safety and knowledge of the event. The written test score
comprises 25 percent of the competitor's final score.
Last year, 74 teams from states such as Oregon, Virginia,
Kansas and Georgia competed at the championship.
