PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Senior All-Americans Joseph Todaro and Michael Matthews turned in Army's top individual marks in smallbore and air rifle, respectively, at the NRA Sectionals hosted by the University of the Sciences at the Colonel William Shea Rifle Range Friday afternoon.

The Black Knights, who competed on paper targets (which are more difficult), posted a team score of 4642 in besting last year's mark at this event by 14 points.

Todaro registered a 583 in smallbore with freshmen Danielle Cuomo and Allen Solida  firing respective scores of 574 and 572 followed by Matthews' 570 as members of Army's counting team that combined for a 2299.

Todaro led the way with Army's top marks in prone (197) and standing (195) with Solida firing a team-best 195 in kneeling.

Matthews authored Army's top air rifle score of 589 with Richard Calvin chipping in with a 586, along with a 585 by Todaro and 583 from Alyssa Gestl as members of Army's counting unit that shot a 2343. Cuomo, posting Army's second highest score in both disciplines, recorded a personal best 587 in air rifle competing individually.

Todaro tallied an 1168 aggregate followed by Cuomo (1161) and Matthews (1159).

Army returns to the dual circuit when it takes on GARC rival Navy in the annual "Star" match on Feb. 1 in Annapolis, Md.
