    2011-12 Outlook: Cadet Vasquez was one of our top air rifle shooters last year and feel he will lead the team in this event. His smallbore scores are increasing consistently and should make the first team in this event during the season. Cadet Vasquez has a great chance to qualify for the NCAA Individual Championships. As the Team Captain he has already fostered a positive/winning atmoshphere.
