Mocanda's score was her fourth performance registering a 590-plus mark and her third-best this season.

Andrea Palafox gunned 586 and Josie Burzynski finished with 574. Hannah Muegge rounded out the air group shooting 573.

Moncada notched a team-high 576 in smallbore. Muegge followed with a personal-best 566 and Burzynski and Morgan Glenn each posted scores of 559.

The Miners head to Oxford, Miss. Next week to take on Ole Miss. They return home on Nov. 14 to face Nebraska.
