Senior rifle student Rosemary Kramer has been selected to Team USA for the World University Games in Naples, Italy July 3-9, announced Thursday.
Kramer is one of four rifle students selected across the country to represent the United States. Each shooter will shoot both guns in the Airgun 60 shot match as well as the 3×40. Kramer will then be one of two to go on and shoot the mixed doubles event on July 9th due to being the highest female scorer at the NCAA Championship.
“The athletes were selected from their performance at the 2019 NCAA Rifle Championship,” said Team Coach Web Wright, LTC (Ret.), U.S. Army in a press release. “They are the best collegiate shooters in the country and will make a formidable US team to compete in Naples.”
Based off her NCAA-record of 599 in the air rifle preliminaries as well as going on to finish third to become the first medalist in GS history there’s no question as to why Kramer was selected to help represent the USA.
The senior will be joining Liz March of TCU, Levi Clark of Memphis, and Will Shaner of Kentucky on the squad to represent the United States. For more information regarding the competition and schedule of events, click here.
