JACKSONVILLE, Ala. – A week after shooting its season-best aggregate at TCU, the University of Memphis rifle team did one better at Jacksonville State's Gamecock Invitational Sunday. Well, try 10 points better.
The Tigers shot a season-best 4679 aggregate (2330 smallbore/2349 air rifle) – which was 10 points better than last week's 4669 – to win the Gamecock Invitational for a second-straight season. In winning the Gamecock Invitational crown, Memphis defeated four nationally ranked teams in No. 5 Ole Miss, No. 12 Murray State, No. 13 Jacksonville State and No. 21 UAB.
Freshman Taylor Gibson led the way, shooting an invitational-best 1177 aggregate.
