Nevada played two games last week and was defeated in both contests. The Wolf Pack started out the week with a 1-0 loss to Air Force and two days later were beat by Colorado College 3-0. This continues Nevada’s rough stretch of games. The Wolf Pack has now lost five straight games and have not scored a goal in its last three contests.


The Wolf Pack had two matches last weekend in El Paso, Texas. Nevada was able to defeat UTEP 4,633-4,597 and 4,605-4,528 in the two contests; Nevada was then defeated by Ohio State 4,633- 4,597 and 4,649-4,605 in its two matches. The Wolf Pack is now ranked No. 14 by the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association and is led by junior Greta Ochsner.


The men’s team traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada to play in the ITA regionals. The tournament’s most notable performance was the play of junior Andrew Poustie and senior Fernando Sunago. The doubles pair was able to win the consolation bracket. The women’s team played in the Regional Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The team was eliminated from the tournament on day three.


Nevada made the trip out to Sunnyvale, California for the Bronco Invitational. The Pack was able to get a top-10 finish as they finished 10th. Nevada had two standouts from the meet in senior Demerey Kirsch and junior Emily Myers who both

broke the Nevada record for fastest time in a 6k race with times of 20:44.7 and 20:33.3 respectively. Myers finished the race seventh out of 172 runners.
