Launer Gets Weekly Award

Brian Launer, a senior on the WVU rifle team, has been named WVU athlete of the week for his performance in two matches over the weekend.

Launer shot a match-high 577 air rifle score in the Mountaineers GARC win over North Carolina State on Sunday, Nov. 13, one day after firing a personal- best 583 smallbore score in the team's loss to Mississippi.

His 583 smallbore against the Rebels was one point shy of the school record for a 60-shot course. He also carded a 576 smallbore against NC state and a 573 air rifle against Ole Miss, which was tops amongst WVU counting team members.

The WVU rifle team (1-2, 1-2) steps out of conference competition for the first time this season and also travels for the first time when the Mountaineers visit Navy on Friday, Nov. 18, for a noon start
