Freshman Alexandria Harrington has been named the CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week after breaking an individual record and being part of three team records in the Bears home contest with Yale and John Jay on Saturday.
In just the second match of her collegiate career, Harrington led the team in breaking the school Air Rifle Four Person Team record with a personal best score of 581 out of 600, which was tied for top individual score in the match.
She was the second high scorer on the four person team which established a new Academy record in the Smallbore Rifle four person team. She highlighted that performance by breaking the Academy record in the kneeling stage with a 192 out of 200.
The two new records in the sub-aggregate matches resulted in a new school record in the combined team event.
“Harrington has shown great focus and attention to detail in her training and she displays poise and confidence in competition which is reflected in her high performance level.” remarked head shooting coach Richard Hawkins.
The Bears are back in action against Army, Navy and Air Force on Nov. 7th at the President’s Cup at Army.
