MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia rifle team is showing off its NCAA championship trophy at an open house.

WVU says in a news release that fans can greet coach Jon Hammond and his team on Tuesday evening at the WVU Rifle Range in Morgantown.

The Mountaineers won their fifth straight NCAA rifle championship earlier this month in Columbus, Ohio. It was the 19th national rifle title overall and the sixth under Hammond.

Mountaineer freshmen Morgan Phillips won the smallbore individual title and classmate Milica Babic took the air rifle crown.
