Rifle Sophomore Alivia Yeager Stronger After Maxillofacial Surgery
Natasha Dinsmore is in her third season with the Ole Miss Rifle program after being promoted to assistant coach in September of last year. Dinsmore served as a graduate assistant for the team in the 2010-2011 season, after concluding a four-year career on the West Virginia Rifle team.
"Natasha continues to grow as a coach everyday, We are fortunate to have someone with such passion for the sport as well as solid work ethic here at Ole Miss," said Ole Miss head coach Valerie Boothe.
Dinsmore assists Boothe in coaching, recruiting and with administrative duties, as well as in strength and conditioning and organizing team travel.
"I am very much looking forward to this season. We are continuing to build off our strong foundation to capitalize on the talent we have returning this year."
Dinsmore went to Morgantown as a walk-on student-athlete, earned a scholarship and was a four-year letterwinner. She took up competitive shooting while visiting Germany on a Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Scholarship. After falling in love with the sport, Dinsmore turned down a field hockey scholarship to pursue her new found love of shooting in college.
A native of Morgantown, Dinsmore earned the GARC Academic Award for having the highest GPA on the Mountaineer team in 2006 and was named to the Athletic Academic Honor Roll every semester as a student at WVU. She earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Animal and Veterinary Sciences in 2008 and followed that with a Master's in Agriculture, Forestry and Consumer Sciences in 2010. Dinsmore is currently pursuing a Master's of Science in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology and Pain Perception at Ole Miss.
