COLUMBUS, Ohio – The UTEP rifle team showed good form by firing its second-best total (4540) on the year in a four-way match at the Hugh w. Wylie Range Saturday. No. 1 Kentucky topped the field (4688), followed by host & #9 Ohio State (4623), the Miners (4540) and the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology (4408).

Senior Korina Rodriguez set the tone for the Miners with her third-best score of her career (575-585-1160) while freshman Rachael Schoenrock (559-5780-1137) used a big effort in the air rifle to buoy her.
Fellow newcomer Jasmine Juarez (556-575-1131) enjoyed a career day (prior best 1108).
UTEP will return to El Paso and get back to work at the range in preparation for its next match at Murray State on Jan. 25.
