Five Members from UTEP Rifle team secure CRCA Scholastic All-American Honors

Five different members of the UTEP rifle team have earned placement on the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association (CRCA) Scholastic All-America list, it was recently announced by the organization.

 Amoret McCartney, Samantha Miller, Morgahn Warner, Jonna Warnken and Jennie Windle were all so distinguished for their efforts in the classroom.

“I’m always very proud of my athletes, but especially when they do well academically,” UTEP head coach Austin Litherland said. “They all not only work hard in the range, but also in the classroom. They all know that being a student comes first, and they show that through their grades.”

The quintet also helped the Orange and Blue thrive on the range in 2019-20. UTEP’s average aggregate (4588) tied as the sixth highest in program history. Aiding in that average was the Miners surpassing 4600 in three of the final four matches on the season, including a campaign-high 4610 against Jacksonville State (2/20).

UTEP nearly matched that total after firing a 4608 in the season finale during its NCAA Qualifier match (2/22).

To be eligible for the CRCA Scholastic All-American honors, a student-athlete must hold a 3.20 grade-point average.

UTEP Rifle Adds To Signing Class With Prep Standout Samantha Miller

Samantha Miller inked a national letter of intent to attend school and compete with the UTEP rifle team beginning with the 2017-18 season, head coach Hannah Muegge revealed Monday.

Miller is the second individual for the 2017 signing class, joining Jessica Boyce.

“As we continue to build our roster for the 2017-18 season, Samantha Miller brings both a good attitude and a high level of motivation to the table,” Muegge said. “She has some great expectations set coming into the program and will help push us to achieve our team goals both on and off the range.”

Miller, understandably so, is thrilled with the chance to become a Miner.

“Being a Miner to me means that I get to continue on in a sport I love and have a passion for,” Miller said. “The best part is I will be with a shooting team that will become family. I will have support behind me all the time, as I will support them. I will have a coach who is there for me to help me with my problems while getting an education for something later in life. I can’t wait to join the Miner family.”
