OXFORD, Miss. -- Following a come from behind victory against No. 13 Navy, the No. 12 ranked Ole Miss Rifle team travels to Murray, Ky. to take on the No. 11 ranked Murray State Racers who are coming off a second place finish at the Ohio Valley Conference Championships.
Against the Midshipmen, the Rebels shot a school record in air rifle (2353) pushing their win streak to two matches in a row. The Rebels boast two shooters with top 10 national scores, freshman Alison Weisz shot 594 in air rifle and senior Melissa Quartarone posted 585 in smallbore against Memphis.
“We are ready to close out the regular season this weekend. Murray State has a nice range, and we are pumped to get to shoot at the NCAA Championship site,” head coach Valerie Boothe said. “They are a team to beat for us and have posted some great team scores this year. We are looking forward to the challenge of putting our best on the line and leaving it all on the range.”
Being the last weekend of the regular season the team is looking for a record score against the Racers before next week’s NCAA Qualifier in Lexington, Ky.
In order to qualify for the NCAA Championships the top three scores from three different locations are averaged with a team’s score from the NCAA Qualifier. The top eight teams will travel to Murray State for the championships.
Heading into the final two weekends of regular season competition, the Rebels’ top three scores stand at 4646 (at Memphis), 4640 (in Oxford), and 4630 posted against Akron University in Morgantown, W.V.
