Rebels Win Awards At GARC Banquet
Assistant Coach Natasha Dinsmore

Feb. 22, 2013

OXFORD, Miss. – Following the opening day of the 2013 Great America Rifle Conference Championships (GARC), the conference held a banquet Friday night at the Oxford Convention Center to recognize athletes from the conference for their accomplishments during the 2012-13 regular season.

The banquet witnessed Ole Miss shooters and coaches earn conference honors and team recognition.  

Junior Melissa Quartarone earned Honorable Mention honors in combined, which includes both smallbore and air rifle.

“She’s a hard worker and we are very proud that she earned this honor,” head coach Valerie Boothe said.  

This marks the second year in a row for Quartarone to earn GARC recognition.  In 2012, she was named to the second team in smallbore and air rifle as well as in combined.

Natasha Dinsmore, who is in her second year as a full-time assistant coach with the Rebels, was named the inaugural GARC Assistant Coach of the Year.

“I am so excited for Natasha.  She’s very deserving of this award,” Boothe said.  “She’s a hard worker who gets things done.   She’s a big reason why we keep moving forward as a program. She keeps everything going, and I am proud to have her as our staff.”

The Rebels earned the Sportsmanship Award, given to the team who displays outstanding character and sportsmanship throughout the season.

“We don’t set out the year trying to earn it, but we do try to approach each match the way that we would want it to be,” Boothe said.  “We try to run our matches the way that we would want them to be run and treat everyone the way that we would want our team to be treated.”

For the second year in a row, senior Kim Coffey represented Ole Miss as the Rebel Scholar Athlete of the Year.  She is also a two-time Collegiate Rifle Coaches’ Association (CRCA) Academic All-American and a two-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll.

The GARC Championships continue at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center Saturday morning beginning at 7 a.m. with team smallbore competition.  The smallbore finals will be at 5:30 p.m.     

The complete list of GARC awards follows.
