The NC State rifle team had one participant at the NCAA Championships in graduate student Lauren Phillips.
Phillips has had a stellar campaign in her final year of collegiate eligibility, and concluded her career with a strong 12th-place finish in the smallbore competition inside McAlister Field House at The Citadel on Friday.
Phillips, a Seabeck, Washington native, recorded a score of 582 which was just two points shy of advancing to the finals session.
In her first series she fired a 98 and a 97 in her second series, the kneeling position. In prone, she notched 98 and 99, respectively, then closed out with a 94 and 96 in the standing position.
She received incredible accolades in her final season at NC State. She was named to the second team All-GARC selection in the small bore, plus an honor in the air rifle. Last year she claimed the GARC Championship in the small bore.
Phillips completes her collegiate career as a four-time All-American and an eight-time all-conference selection.
As a team, the Wolfpack concluded the 2017-18 season at 11-7 overall, just missing the NCAAs as a team.
