After two recent competitions, the paintball team is ranked fourth out of 71 teams in the nation.
The Texas Tech student-organized Paintball Team is on a roll recently after excelling in two competitions.
The group, split into two teams, placed first and fourth at the University of North Texas Open in November in Allen and placed fourth and sixth at the University of Texas Open in October in San Marcos.
