GARC Central

OXFORD, Miss. -- For the 10th consecutive year, Ole Miss will host the Great America Rifle Conference Championships (GARC) at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center this weekend (Feb. 28-March 2).

Ole Miss, along with West Virginia, Kentucky, Army, Navy, NC State, Nebraska, and Memphis, make up the conference. Akron, who will officially join the conference next year, is competing this weekend as well.

“We are always excited when the teams want to come back to our venue,” head coach Valerie Boothe said. “It’s an elite group that we are proud to be associated with.  I know our team will work hard as they have all season, and the seniors will definitely have a tough time saying goodbye.  I just want them to have one more great match.”

The GARC is one of the best conferences in the country in rifle. All of the teams that make up the conference are currently sitting inside the top 20 in the latest rankings, including No. 1 West Virginia, No. 3 Kentucky, No. 4 Nebraska, No. 6 Memphis and No. 7 Army. Ole Miss sits at No. 12.

Regular season GARC Champion West Virginia is the defending champion of the GARC Championships.

The Rebels have five seniors on the roster, and this will be their final collegiate match before graduating.

Admission to the GARC Championships is free, and fans who come out to watch Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m., will receive a free Ole Miss Rifle water bottle, while supplies last.
