We May Be A 4 Seed - But We've Already Won A Championship (Fringe Sports Edition)

Not lost in all the basketball glory this past weekend was the Kentucky Rifle’s team huge win in the NCAA tournament. Since I began covering the fringe sports around UK, the rifle team has quickly become one of my favorites.  Mainly because they’re just so damn good.  While the Kentucky Rifle team has had great success over the past 17 years, and finished in the top ten most every year, they had yet to win the national title.

Winning their first NCAA Title wasn’t easy though, as Kentucky had to hold off a streaking West Virginia team on the final day.  They went into Saturday with a 7 point lead, and finished the day with a 3 one.  Close, but enough to take home the hardware.

Congratulations to UK Coach Harry Mullin’s Gat Cats, and we hope to see much more from you in the future.
