OXFORD, Miss. – It’s not quite spring break, but Ole Miss junior Abbey Stanec gets to go home to Ohio a little early as she is set to compete in the NCAA Rifle Championships March 8-9 at the Converse Hall and French Field House on the campus of The Ohio State University.

Stanec, whose hometown is about two hours northeast of Columbus, qualified as an individual in both smallbore and air rifle.  She tallied a season-high 590 in air rifle and 581 in smallbore at the NCAA Qualifier in Lexington, Ky., back in February to earn her second consecutive trip to the NCAA Championships.

“My family is very excited, they’re all going to come and watch.  They’ve been talking about it since the announcement,” Stanec said.

Stanec finished runner-up last year in air rifle at NCAAs with a total score of 693.5 to complete a successful sophomore season. She entered the air rifle finals in third place after producing a pre-finals score of 592.

“It’s always exciting to take an athlete or team to the NCAA rifle championships,” head coach Valerie Boothe said.  “It’s not the ending that I wanted, but I couldn't be prouder than to have Ole Miss represented by Abbey Stanec.  She is a great all around athlete and really deserves to be shooting in this match.”
