The Varsity rifle team put in a strong effort this past Sunday against U.S. Naval Academy, Norwich College, and Depaul College. All four teams competed in both small-bore and air rifle. Navy came out on top in small-bore with a score of 4,536 to Norwich's 4,502, MIT's 4,405, and Depaul's 4,213. Norwich narrowly edged out Navy in the air rifle competition, scoring 1,521 points to Navy's 1,520. Depaul finished with 1,456 points and MIT concluded with 1,435.

The high shooter for the match and small-bore was MIT's own Arte Merritt '95, with a score of 1,158.
