OXFORD, Miss. – The high in Oxford Wednesday was a nice 70 degrees, compared to 37 degrees when the Ole Miss rifle team arrived in Fairbanks, Alaska.  The No. 14 ranked Rebels will spend the next several days in Fairbanks, Alaska where they will face off against No. 16 NC State and No. 3 Alaska-Fairbanks.

“We have put so much time and effort into planning this trip that we really want to make it count,” head coach Valerie Boothe said.

Last weekend the Rebels welcomed fellow GARC member Army to the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center, but the Cadets came away with the win.   After two outings, Coach Boothe is still looking for a solid score from the senior-laden Rebels.

“The ladies have focused on key issues in training this week to do everything they can to post a great team score,” Boothe said.  “With us facing off against another conference opponent, we are really looking for a win.”

On Friday, the Rebels will shoot against GARC member NC State and then on Sunday, they will face off against Alaska-Fairbanks.   The Wolfpack opened the 2013-14 campaign with a win at the first Southeastern Air Rifle Conference match of the season.  Alaska-Fairbanks and NC State will meet on Saturday before the Nanooks face the Rebels.
