Mara Rouse returned to action, leading UTEP (4576) with an 1163 aggregate versus Ohio State (4661) Saturday afternoon at the UTEP Rifle Range.
“Today was our first match back at home,” Head coach Austin Litherland said. “We competed against a hard team, and worked for all of our points. We have time before our next match to work on trouble areas. We will focus on getting our mental game hardened for our next one.”
Rouse missed last week’s meet against TCU due to injury. The team captain came back and dominated with the highest aggregate (1163) for the Miners all year. Rouse posted a career high in smallbore (579) and a season-high 584 air rifle score.
Jonna Warnken followed Rouse with an 1141 aggregate. The freshman locked in a 564-smallbore mark and a 577 air rifle tally.
Morgahn Warner posted the third highest aggregate (1138) and Amoret McCartney was right behind her with an 1137 aggregate on the day.
Samantha Miller (1127) and Jennie Windle (1122) rounded out the group.
Next up, the Miners will host Alaska on November 22 at the UTEP Rifle Range.
