WVU heads to Akron without favorite status for NCAA rifle championships

As West Virginia heads to Akron for the NCAA Rifle Championships, head coach Jon Hammond is still in teaching mode. That, even though the Mountaineers have only this two-day competition remaining in their 2022-23 season.

"There are lots of little things that we can build upon, and having the experience of being in a big arena like (the WVU Shell Building) and being in this, which is in a lot of ways an identical experience to the NCAAs," Hammond said after the Mountaineers took the Great American Rifle Conference title the weekend before last. As always, Hammond has been striving for the proper balance between training and rest, both mental and physical, in preparation for the ultimate collegiate event in his sport.
