MORGANTOWN, W.V. - The No. 9 ranked Ole Miss women's rifle team defeated No. 13 North Carolina State 4622-4609 Saturday at West Virginia to conclude its road trip 1-1. The Rebels lost to No.1 West Virginia on Friday.

The Rebels and Wolfpack were tied after each shot a 2294 in smallbore, but the Rebels, led by juniors Melissa Quartarone and Abbey Stanec, closed with a 2328 in air rifle for the win.  N.C. State posted a 2315 in air.

Quartarone posted all 10s on her last two targets to finish with a 586 and push the Rebels over the top.  She tallied a team-leading 577 in smallbore for an aggregate of 1163.  Senior Kim Coffey recorded a 576 in smallbore.  Stanec finished with a 585 in air to help the final charge.  

"We did a better job in smallbore today with solid performances from Melissa and Kim.  We struggled some in air but the contributions from Melissa and Abbey in air clinched the win for us," head coach Valerie Boothe said.

The Rebels concluded the fall with third place finishes at the Tiger Invitational and the Ole Miss Invitational and wins over Murray State and N.C. State.  They will take a break from competition and return to the range Jan. 19 when they host Kentucky at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center.
