Oct. 26, 2010
U.S. Air Force Academy, Colo. -- Senior Tom Chandler (Oak Harbor, Wash.) was the Air Force Academy's highest marksman in both air rifle (590/600) and smallbore (589/600) versus the University of Nebraska rifle team, Oct. 23, in Lincoln. In the smallbore match, Chandler was the overall high scorer with 589 points, setting a personal and team record. In air rifle, Chandler and Nebraska's Janine Dutton went head-to-head in the rifle match as both scored 590 points. Chandler's aggregate score was a career high (1,179).
"This was definitely a good way to start the season," said head coach Launi Meili. "With Tom score, it's a great feeling to do your best in a match when it counts."
"Air Force's next match against all the other academies, hosted at Coast Guard, will be a great place to show what we are capable of," according to Meili. "We are looking ahead to that weekend now and planning for a solid performance."
Air Force will be in New London, Conn., for the All Service Academies (President's Cup) Championships on Saturday, Nov. 6.
