MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University fans are invited to attend a celebration for the 2014 National Champion rifle team Monday, March 17, from 5:30 – 7 p.m., in the Jerry West Lounge at the WVU Coliseum.
The Mountaineers (10-0, 7-0 GARC) and coach Jon Hammond will be available to greet fans and take pictures. Fans also will have the opportunity to take pictures with the team’s nation-best 16th NCAA Championships trophy.
WVU shot a championships-record 4705 and won its second straight NCAA title today at Murray State’s CFSB Center, in Murray, Ky. The win is the team’s third in eight years under coach Hammond; the squad also won in 2009. The Mountaineers won air rifle (2367) and smallbore (2338).
