Feb. 16, 2014
EL PASO, TEXAS – Personal records by freshmen Jessica Kinder and Jasmine Juarez contributed to the No. 20 UTEP rifle team setting season highs across the board against No. 10 TCU at the UTEP Rifle Range Sunday.
The Miners, who had been idle for more than a month due to poor weather cancelling flights for road trips, showed no ill effects from the layoff. UTEP fired season bests in smallbore (2265) and air rifle (2314) to post its top aggregate score (4579) in two years while sharing the ranged with the Horned Frogs (4648).
Kinder recorded her top aggregate total of her career (1146), which was aided by a personal-best in air rifle (586). She wrapped up action in smallbore at 560, her second-highest sum of the campaign.
Juarez also finished with her best aggregate (1138), which was helped from her top total in the smallbore (566) and second-highest score in the air rifle (572).
Senior Areli Oros was locked in during the air rifle, turning in a score of 554 to tie her second-best sum in the discipline. She posted a score of 503 in the smallbore to finish at 1087, the third-best total of her career with the Orange and Blue.
Fellow classmate Korina Rodriguez was also sharp by firing the third-highest aggregate (1162) during her time with the Miners. She recorded solid scores in both the smallbore (579) and air rifle (583).
Freshman Rachael Schoenrock aided in the efforts as well with an aggregate of 1133. She opened up with 573 in the air rifle before turning in a score of 560 in the small bore.
Another freshman, Monthserra Serna, joined in the fun for career highs by posting a personal-best 543 in the air rifle.
