WVU wins 15th national rifle title

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia University has won its 15th national rifle championship.

The Mountaineers won the title on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, with a final team score of 4,679. Kentucky finished in a close second with a team score of 4,670.

Senior Petra Zublasing swept the individual awards for both smallbore and air rifle.

It’s the first national title for the Mountaineers rifle program since 2009.

The rifle team was among five varsity sports dropped by WVU in 2003 in a cost-cutting move. Varsity status was restored the following year, but the team still gets no university funding, surviving on money that comes from the state Legislature, the athletics department and fundraisers.

Kimble to return as Mountaineer mascot

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Jonathan Kimble has been named West Virginia University’s mascot for another year.

The graduate student beat out three other finalists. His selection was announced at the WVU men’s basketball game with Iowa State on Saturday.

Kimble has made more than 300 appearances since taking over in April 2012.

He’s also seen some controversy.

FSU’s Jackson

ECAC South All-Star


CENTERVILLE, Mass. — Frostburg State senior men's basketball standout Christian Jackson was selected as a 2012-13 First Team Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III South All-Star, Friday morning.

Jackson, a First Team All-CAC honoree, led the league in scoring from the outset of the 2012-13 season, averaging 25.8 points per game. He finished the season second among all NCAA Division III players in scoring as well.

Jackson, who played just one season for the Bobcats, led the team in scoring in 22 of 26 games and scored more than 30 points in a game eight times.

He set several school records including single-season scoring (670 points), coming up just seven points shy of the CAC season record. Jackson poured in a season-high 38 points against Waynesburg behind a school record 18-of-19 (94.7 percent) free throws.
