Quartarone Leads Rebels Against Alaska Senior Posts Career-Best In Smallbore
Oct. 13, 2013
FAIRBANKS, Alaska – Senior Melissa Quartarone fired a career-best in smallbore and also led No. 14 ranked Ole Miss in air rifle, but a school-record performance from No. 3 ranked Alaska-Fairbanks pushed the Nanooks to a 4694-4610 win over the Rebels Sunday.
The Rebels opened their first ever trip to the Last Frontier state with a win over No. 14 NC State on Friday.
Against Alaska-Fairbanks, Quartarone fired a 586 in smallbore, one off the school-record of 587 and three better than her previous career-best, to lead the Rebels who shot a 2285. Abbey Stanec turned in a 570.
Quartarone also shot a 586 in air rifle to pace the Rebels, who finished with a 2325. Stanec totaled a 584, and freshman Alison Weisz posted a season-best 583, one better than her score against Army.
The Rebels are still aiming for more though, according to head coach Valerie Boothe, who spoke of her team’s next challenge while waiting to board the plane home to Oxford.
“We knew today would be tough, we had some great efforts, but it just wasn’t what we wanted,” Boothe said. “Now we have to get back and start preparing for Kentucky.”
The road doesn’t get any easier for Ole Miss with a road trip coming up to No. 2 Kentucky next weekend.
