Liberty University sophomore Ian Rigney defended his United States Intercollegiate Archery 3D National Championships individual men's compound title last weekend at the University of Missouri with a tournament-high second-round total.

This is one of the targets at 3D Nationals, punctured with multiple arrowheads.

After Saturday's first day of individual competition, Rigney, of Gretna, Va., was in second place out of 114 competitors, trailing only Missouri State's Jacob Spurgeon, 203-199. Rigney recoiled and fired a 206 in Sunday's second round, the best of the championships, to overtake Spurgeon (the runner-up with 396) for first place with a 405 total.

Fellow Flames sophomore Hunter Jacobs improved on his first-round score of 168 with a 174 on Sunday to finish 20th individually at 342, one spot ahead of Liberty's Mike Dunn (128-137-265).

In the individual women's compound event, senior Marissa Scalzo placed eighth for the Lady Flames by following her 130 first-round score with a 168 in the second for a 298 two-day total.

For the weekend, Liberty placed fourth in the Men's Compound and fifth in the Mixed (male and female) Compound divisions in the team competition.

The 3D Nationals, a United States Collegiate Archery Association event started in 2009, drew a record turnout in all eight divisions, which ranged from men's and women's bowhunter to basic bow and recurve. Seventeen schools were represented and several of the matches were closely contested, with champions decided by a few points. View the complete results.
