Texas Tech Paintball Team Ranks Top in the Nation
January 4, 2010

The student-organized team is in the top five paintball teams in the country.
The Texas Tech University student-organized Paintball Team is on a roll recently
after excelling in two competitions.
The Texas Tech 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.
After the University of Texas Open, organization president Cameron Culver, said improvement
was a must for the University of North Texas Open.
“We knew that our next event was only three weeks away so we only had two weekends
of practice leading up to it,” Culver said. “We wanted both teams to do better.”
Culver said nobody expected the second line to win first place in the Open.
“We were really proud after our second team received first place,” he said.
After these two competitions, the Texas Tech students’ team currently ranks fourth
in the nation out of 71 teams.
