The MAC Air Rifle Shooter of the Month is Sarah Wright of MIT.
Wright, from Christchurch New
Sarah returned to the shooting when she arrived at MIT in the fall of 2012. She made a strong first impression and immediately bonded with her fellow teammates. Having never shot standing or kneeling, she worked with the more veteran shooters and quickly made the transition into a 3-position and air rifle shooter. Sarah finished her first season by making the MAC All- Rookie team and finishing 10th at the MAC Championships. During her remaining three years of NCAA eligibility she won three consecutive MAC Championship titles in the individual 3-position event from 2013-2016. She also added a MAC individual air rifle championship title to her list of MAC accolades this past season. Sarah currently holds both the school small-bore and air rifle record. She also has led the team to numerous school records over the last 3 years. One of her greatest accomplishments this past season was establishing herself as an air rifle shooter when she shot a 590 at the NCAA Qualifier in air rifle and was named second alternate for the 2016 NCAA Championships. Sarah has been voted Team MVP and captain for the last three years by her peers. Sarah Wright leaves her NCAA shooting career as MITís most decorated shooter!
