OXFORD, Miss. - The 11th-ranked Ole Miss rifle team hosted its first ever Shoot Pink match Saturday at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center, facing off against No. 5 Army in a Great America Rifle Conference (GARC) match.
Fans in attendance received pink seat cushions, and five gift baskets donated by Baptist Memorial Hospital were auctioned off to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness.
The Rebels were hoping to improve on Thursday's score (4600) at the Memphis Invitational, but finished with a 4597 in smallbore and air rifle combined. Army totaled a 4640 combined.
"We are putting forth our best effort, but unfortunately our scores didn't reflect it today," head coach Valerie Boothe said. "I know they will pick up the pace for our next matches and achieve what we want. It's still early in the season."
The day began with the Rebels shooting a 2272 in smallbore led by senior Melissa Quartarone's 576. Michael Matthews paced Army in smallbore with a 584 as they shot a 2304.
In air rifle, the Rebels turned in a 2325, while Army finished with a 2336. Senior Rena Goodwin led Ole Miss with a 584. Freshman Alison Weisz recorded a 582, four better than her debut on Thursday in Memphis.
Ole Miss returns to action next weekend in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Rebels will shoot against No. 15 ranked North Carolina State Friday, Oct. 11 and then against No. 3 ranked Fairbanks-Alaska Sunday, Oct. 13.
