Air Force Academy marksman, senior Tom Chandler, Oak Harbor, WA, was named Athlete of the Week (Nov. 15-21) for his accomplishments at the Air Force - UTEP and University of Nevada-Reno meets, Nov. 20 and Nov. 21, respectively. Chandler's achievement this weekend is something that an Academy rifle shooter has not done in a long time. In both meets, Chandler was the highest scorer overall with two season highs in air rifle with 592/600 against both opponents. In smallbore, he outscored the two opponents with 583s.
Air Force won the UTEP meet, 4,611-4,582, and lost to UNR, 4,622-4,617, at the USAFA Rifle Range. The Air Force rifle team will host the University of Alaska on Dec. 2.
