Six members of the team have been named to the All-American team.

Per Sandberg was named first team smallbore, while senior Captain Grant Mecozzi was named first team air rifle. Amber Darland was named second team smallbore and air rifle, while Mecozzi was named second team smallbore and Sandberg was named second team air rifle.
