Marsha's Minute...
"Sunday was a very close match and we are pleased to have come out on top," said head coach Marsha Beasley. The match could easily have gone the other way.  Navy is a tough place to shoot - there are some things about their facility that make it particularly challenging.  Navy's scores this semester have been well above what they were doing in the fall which also changed the dynamics of the match.

"Sophia Cuozzo's 576 in smallbore was a personal best and Abby Buesseler's 196 in kneeling was her collegiate best.  I always like to focus on personal bests.  Those are key to improvement.  The team members are doing a lot of things right.  We know what we need to work on and I am confident we will continue to improve."
