Ole Miss Rifle Completes NCAA Qualifier Abbey Stanec With Season Best Aggregate Score
Feb. 16, 2013
LEXINGTON, Ky. - The No. 11 ranked Ole Miss rifle team posted an aggregate score of 4632 Saturday in its NCAA Qualifier match held at the University of Kentucky's Barker Hall. The score equals their second highest mark of the year.
Junior Abbey Stanec led the Rebels with a season best aggregate score of 1171, tying her for the top score by a Rebel this year. The Ohio native turned in a 581 in smallbore, one off her career-best and a season-high.
The Rebels, led by Stanec again, tallied a 2334 in air rifle. Stanec fired a team-best 590, two off her career-high set last year in the pre-finals of the NCAA Championships. The 590 is her best air rifle score this season and the second highest by a Rebel this season.
Yeager shot a 584, Quartarone fired a 582, and Goodwin turned in a 578 to round out the Rebels in air.
"The team put it all on the line today," head coach Valerie Boothe said. "I feel like they gave a great effort. This weekend has hurt us the last couple of seasons, and I'm pleased with this result. Now our patience will be tested while we wait for the [NCAA] teams and individuals to be announced."
The Rebels score from Saturday equated for 50 percent of their season average. The other 50 percent already had been completed, and came from Ole Miss' top three regular season scores, each having to come from a different site.
The Rebels are looking for their second ever NCAA Tournament appearance in program history. Ole Miss' lone appearance came in 2006.
Ole Miss entered Saturday's Qualifier match as the No. 11 team in the latest CRCA poll. After the weekend ends, the top eight teams in the nation with the highest averages advance to the March 8-10 NCAA Championships in Columbus, Ohio.
The Rebels will find out Wednesday of this week whether or not they made the NCAA Championships, during an NCAA Selection call at 4 p.m. CT.
