undefinedThe Ohio State University won its first national championship since 2000 last week at the 2014 NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Championship, held March 8-13 in Fort Benning, Ga.

More than 100 of the nation's top college pistol shooters, representing 16 schools, competed in the event, which was sanctioned by the NRA and hosted by the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit. The top-scoring shooters from the annual NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Sectionals held in January and February qualified for the championship.

Ohio State captured the team national championship with an aggregate score of 6,310 out of a possible 7,200 points. The United States Naval Academy finished second with a score of 6,259, and the defending-champion United States Military Academy finished third with 6,257.

Propelling the Buckeyes to victory was senior Joe Totts, who won the individual national championship with a score of 1613 out of 1800. Lexi Lagan of the University of Utah earned the individual women's national championship, a feat made all the more impressive by the fact that she's only been shooting competitively for three years.

At the conclusion of the championship NRA named its 2014 All-American pistol teams. Here are the 2014 first-team selections:
