Coach Monez is a highly decorated shooter in many different disciplines and was named by Shooting Sports magazine as one of the top 50 shooters of the 20th Century. She has been coaching at TCU since 2004 and has taken the team to NCAA national championships 12 times, earning five top five finishes and two national championships. The competitors compete in two disciplines, air rifles at 33 ft, standing position and smallbore at 50 ft, three-positions: standing, kneeling and prone. One of her shooters has registered two of only six perfect scores recorded in air rifle! She has had 17 All-Americans and prides herself in that the team boasts in the top three each quarter in team grade point averages. TCU has a state of the art range, with electronic scoring and presentation of the scores on monitors for the shooter and for the spectators! Coach Monez is an Army veteran, who shot on the Army international rifle team and also for the Army Reserve rifle teams and personally holds over 40 individual golds.
