OXFORD, Miss. -- The No. 12 nationally ranked Ole Miss rifle team will begin the spring season Sunday, hosting No. 4 Jacksonville State and No. 5 Nebraska at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center. The match begins at 8 a.m., and admission is free.
The Rebels closed the fall season in November with a fifth place finish at the Gamecock Invitational in Jacksonville, Ala. The Rebels shot a 4624 and were led by senior Abbey Stanec who posted a combined aggregate of 1166. Fellow senior Melissa Quartarone led the team in air rifle with a score of 588.
After practicing for the better part of a month, Ole Miss head coach Valerie Boothe is excited to see her team compete against two top five teams to open the spring season.
“We are glad to be back in action this weekend,” Boothe said. “The teams coming in are top teams, but we are ready for the challenge. Practice has gone really well and I am excited for them to get the pay off.”
Nebraska finished 2013 with a win over Ohio State shooting 4663, while Jacksonville State finished the year claiming the Gamecock Invitational title with a score of 4678.
The Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center is located on Sisk Avenue off of Highway 7.
