OXFORD, Miss. – The No. 14 ranked Ole Miss Rifle team will travel to the Bluegrass state this weekend to take on No. 2 ranked Kentucky. The two teams will square off Saturday morning at the Buell Armory, beginning at 8 a.m. CT with smallbore.
Ole Miss (1-2) is coming off a trip to Alaska last weekend where they split a pair of matches. The Rebels opened their trip to Alaska with a 4614-4570 win over No. 16 North Carolina State, before falling 4694-4610 on Sunday to No. 3 Alaska-Fairbanks.
Melissa Quartarone led Ole Miss vs. Alaska-Fairbanks, shooting a career-best 586 in smallbore. Her smallbore score was one shy of tying the school record. She also led the team in air rifle with a 586 as well.
This marks the season opener for Kentucky. The Wildcats enter the new season after finishing runner-up at the NCAA Championships in 2012-13. They are led by three returning All-Americans Emily Holsopple, Connor Davis and Elijah Ellis.
Head coach Valerie Boothe talked about the challenge that awaits her team, facing their second top-five team in a row.
“With this being our fifth match and Kentucky’s first match, anything can happen,” Boothe said. “Kentucky has a long standing tradition of being a highly ranked team, so I expect it to be a tough match. We are looking to have everyone focused and ready to put both guns together in the same match.”
