MURRAY, Ky. – The No. 9 ranked Ole Miss rifle team bettered both No. 10 Murray State and No. 4 Jacksonville State in air rifle, but it was not enough to overcome the deficit from smallbore at the Pat Spurgin Range Saturday.  The Rebels finished with a total aggregate of 4609 to MSU’s and JSU’s 4651.

Ole Miss recorded a 2340 in air rifle to beat both schools in that discipline, but a 2269 in smallbore left the Rebels trailing JSU by 46 and Murray State by 45 respectively, heading into air rifle.

Junior Melissa Quartarone had a 578 in smallbore to lead the Rebels, while junior Abbey Stanec shot a 587 to lead Ole Miss in air rifle.

“Smallbore was down from our previous competitions, but we came back in air. Unfortunately it didn’t make up the difference we needed,” head coach Valerie Boothe said.  “We did however have two personal bests from our freshman, Alex (Coyle), with a 569 in smallbore and a 573 in air rifle.

The Rebels will face these same two teams next Saturday at home at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center.  Admission is free to all home matches.
