2013 NCAA invite marks the seventh straight season the Frogs have qualified for the championships. TCU went undefeated in 2012-13, recording a 10-0 mark. The Frogs have won 41 straight regular season matches dating back to the 2009-10 campaign. On four occasions, the Frogs broke the 4,700 threshold, including a school-record 4,718 against Kentucky on Nov. 17. TCU has had a tremendous amount of success in the National Championships the last six seasons. They reached the pinnacle in both 2010 and 2012 as they took home the team National Championship as well as the Air Rifle National Championship in both 2010 and 2012. They have notched two fifth-place finishes (2007 and 2009) and a third place finish in 2008 and 2011. Additionally, Scherer took home the individual smallbore national championship in 2010 and 2012. All three seniors (Caitlin Morrissey, Sarah Beard and Sarah Scherer) are three-time All-Americans in both disciplines.
