Mary Tucker Eighth, Will Shaner 43rd at 2019 ISSF World Cup

Team Notes


Freshman Mary Tucker placed eighth in the 10-meter women’s air rifle at the 2019 ISSF World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Sophomore Will Shaner finished 43rd in the 10m men’s air rifle.

“I am very proud of both their performances,” head coach Harry Mullins said. “They have worked hard to get to this point in their shooting careers, and if they keep working hard, I think we will see some special things from both of them in the future.”

Highlighted by a 106.1 in series five of qualifying, Tucker shot the top qualifying mark in the competition with a 631.1. She was the lone American to advance to the final eight.

The final was set up in two stages. The first stage allowed all eight to shoot 10 shots. In the second stage, competitors were eliminated one-by-one in two-shot increments. Tucker was knocked out in the first elimination, missing the seventh-place cutoff by point-four.

Shaner shot a 622.8 after his six series in qualifying. His best mark came in series four, as he shot a 105.5. Shaner placed 43rd out of 88 competitors.

Tucker and Shaner were both representing the United States at the World Cup that is held from August 26-September 3 with a multitude of rifle and pistol competitions taking place.

Tucker enters her freshman campaign after having a successful high school career. She was the Florida State Junior Olympics Champion in 2017 and competed in the World Cup Fort Benning and CAT Games in 2018.

Shaner is coming off a freshman season where he was named Great American Rifle Conference Rookie of the Year. Shaner represented the United States this summer at the 2019 World University Games in Naples, Italy. He finished 12th in men’s air rifle and eighth in the mixed team event.
