Rebels Return Home to Host Memphis
Feb. 9, 2018


OXFORD, Miss. -- The No. 8 Ole Miss rifle team returns home to host Memphis Sunday at 9 a.m. at the Ole Miss Rifle Range. This will be the first meeting between the two teams this season.

Last Match

The Rebels are coming off their fifth GARC victory this season, with a close win over Navy (4659-4657). Junior Randi Loudin, led the Rebels in smallbore shooting a 580. Freshman, Kamilla Kisch led the team in air rifle shooting a 590.  

Scouting Memphis

The Rebels are looking for their second consecutive win against Memphis after topping the Tigers 4640-4615 last year. Memphis is coming off a loss to No. 1 Kentucky, 4686-4650. The Tigers posted their second-highest aggregate of the 2017-18 campaign.

Marsha’s Minute

The team is really looking forward to competing at home again," said head coach Marsha Beasley.  Our last home match was October 15 – almost four months ago.

I expect our match with Memphis to be a very good contest.  Memphis has been a bit inconsistent this season, but in their most recent match they put up a score very close to what we had last weekend.   I think things are coming together for them.  On the other hand, I am confident Ole Miss will do well if we continue to focus on what we’ve been working on and to stick to our plan. 

Rifle Range Upgrades

The team is very excited about the facility upgrades that were completed in January,” said head coach Marsha Beasley.  It is almost as if we have a new range.  New sound abatement material was installed on the walls and ceilings and looks much nicer.  It has really brightened up the range.  New spectator televisions were added to better show shot placement and scoring.  Finally, a wall was removed.  Together these changes will provide a much-enhanced spectator viewing experience and we hope for a good turnout for our match.
