The Morehead State rifle team is ranked in the top 20, according to the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association preseason poll.

MSU is ranked 19th, one of five Ohio Valley Conference teams listed among the nation's best.

"As the new coach at Morehead State, I look forward to the coming season," Head Coach Alan Joseph said. "The competition will be keen, especially in the OVC. I am happy to be among the top-20 NCAA rifle teams. My team is dedicated to continued improvement in 2014-15."

The preseason poll was a total of the head coaches' votes. Once the season begins, rankings will be determined by the three highest scores a team has, from different locations. This is the procedure used for determining the eight teams invited to the NCAA Championships.

The Eagles have five returners and four newcomers joining the roster this year. Morehead State will open up its season on Oct. 18 at Virginia Military Institute.
