OXFORD, Miss. – The No. 11 ranked Ole Miss rifle team dropped its first match of the spring season to No. 3 Kentucky here Saturday at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center 4760-4611.

The day began with both teams competing in smallbore.  Kentucky, led by Connor Davis’ 580, shot a 2317.  Ole Miss tallied a 2281, led by junior Abbey Stanec with a 573.  

In air rifle, the score was a little closer than smallbore as the Rebels posted a 2330 total, while Kentucky finished with a 2353.   Abbey Stanec led the Rebels and was third among individuals with a 588, four off her career-best.  Senior Kim Coffey shot a 584.

“We knew this would be a tough match,” head coach Valerie Boothe said.  “We are still ironing out the wrinkles from being on break, but I’m confident that each girl learned something from themselves to help prepare for Memphis on Monday.  We’ll get one day to recuperate and will go for it again on Monday.”

The Rebels will host No. 10 Memphis on Monday at 9 a.m.  Admission to all Rifle matches is free.
