The West Virginia rifle team has reclaimed No. 1 in the latest Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association poll as announced on Tuesday. 

The Mountaineers were No. 3 to begin the season, but after wins over No. 2 Ole Miss and No. 8 Murray State, they are back on top. Rounding out the top five is Kentucky (No. 2), TCU (No. 3), Alaska-Fairbanks (No. 4) and Air Force (No. 5). 

West Virginia is back in action on Sunday against Memphis in Morgantown. 

This is the first time since Jan. 13 that WVU is No. 1.
