UCD Win the Intervarsities and Colours 2014

UCD claimed victory at the 2014 Air Rifle Intervarsities and Colours, which took place at Wilkinstown Target Shooting Club, Co Meath on Saturday 8th March. This marks a continuation of a very strong decade for UCD, making it the fourth Invervarsity title in the last five years.

The competition, which was held over six two hour details, ran from 10:00 Saturday morning to after 22:00 on Saturday night. Each college had two squads take part, a novice squad and a senior squad, with the winer of the competition determined by the combined score of the two squads.

Shooters from both UCDRC and DURC (Trinity) had been delivering strong results all season and the expectation was for a very tight competition, which added to the nerves thoughout the competition.

Both the UCD Senior and Novice Squads did very well all though the day, with very impressive performances and many personal bests achieved Scores from DURC were also very strong, with the competition not decided until the last detail.

After the last shot was taken and the final scores tallied up, UCD were the victors by 101 points, taking home the Invervarsities Cup, Intervarsities Novice shield and Colours Shield, while DURC won the Intervarsities Senior Shield by a very slim margin of 12 points. In the individual competitions UCD's Minne Chen won the top Novice Shooter Award and DURC's Stephen Murphy the top Senior Shooter Award.

UCDRC would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the shooters who took part this weekend for their achievements and the range officers and coaches from both clubs for their time and dedication in training and coaching all shooters to such a high level throughout the year.
A special word of thanks also goes to Wilkinstown Target Shooting Club and Geoff Cooney for hosting the competition once again in the WTSC range
