COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State rifle team bids farewell to decorated seniors Amanda Furrer, Robert Mangaudis III, Walter Riker and Maxwell Snyderman.

"This senior class is definitely going out on a high note," Ryan Tanoue, head coach of Ohio State rifle, said. "With Bob and Walter graduating as engineers, Max with a Master's degree in education and Amanda with a degree in economics, this class certainly has it all. I thank each of them for their contributions to the team and what they have done over the past four years to bring the rifle team to where it stands today."

"Winning four consecutive conference championships is something very special and we look forward to building on their success in the coming seasons. I know that they are excited about their futures and I look forward to seeing what the next chapter in their lives has in store for them."
