Pat Spurgin Rifle Range

Located in Room 230 on the north side of Roy Stewart Stadium, the Pat Spurgin Rifle Range is considered one of the finest shooting venues in America. The facility was host to the 2014 NCAA Rifle Championships.

With adjustable targets and electric carriers, the permanent range features a roomy 16 shooting points. The range also houses an arms room and lockers for convenient storage of shooting equipment.

For special matches such as the NCAA Championships, the range can be expanded to allow simultaneous 16-shooter smallbore and air rifle competition. Media and hospitality rooms are located nearby, with match scoring provided by a custom-made computer program that offers competitors timely scoring results.

Named in honor of Pat Spurgin Pitney, an eight-time All-American and gold medalist in the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics, the range has served as the host of eight NCAA championships.

Roy Stewart Stadium is located at the junction of U.S. Highway 641 and Ky. Highway 121 on the north side of the Murray State campus. Ample parking for visiting teams and media is available in the parking lot directly behind the stadium.
