Rife’s End

Xavier was one of just 18 schools nationally with a men’s and women’s varsity rifle program. Under head coach Alan Joseph’s guidance, the program produced 51 All-Americans and two Olympians. It qualified for the NCAA Rifle Championship every year since 1990 and was one of only two teams to finish in the top five in that event each of the last five years.
