OXFORD, Miss. – After tying a school record last weekend at Army, the Ole Miss rifle team moved up a spot to No. 10 in the latest CRCA Rankings, as they get set to step

“We are stepping outside the conference for a short time and getting to go to a new place,” head coach Valerie Boothe said.  “This is the first time that we will be shooting shoulder to shoulder with Navy.  Everyone is excited for this weekend and ready to keep the momentum going.”

Last weekend at Army, the Rebels equaled the school record mark of 4654 in the triangular against No. 5 Army and No. 6 Jacksonville State and posted several solid individual performances.   

The team’s 2315 in smallbore was a season best.  Junior Rena Goodwin posted a personal best 571 in smallbore followed by a PR 588 in air rifle.   Junior Melissa Quartarone finished third individually in smallbore with a season-high 583 and Alivia Yeager shot a career-best 581 to finish fifth among all competitors.  

Navy comes in to Sunday’s match at 3-2 with both losses coming to the current No. 1 and 3 ranked teams in the nation.
