OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss football team is not the only Rebel team who will face a top 10 foe this weekend. The Rifle squad will face two as they host No. 4 Jacksonville State and No. 5 Murray State at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center Saturday. Competition will begin at 9 a.m. and admission is free.
This marks the second consecutive week for the Rebels, who are ranked No. 13 in the latest Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association (CRCA) Rankings, to face MSU and JSU. The Rebels dropped a close match to both teams last weekend in Murray, Ky. Ole Miss recorded a 2340 in air rifle to beat both schools in that discipline, but a 2269 in smallbore proved too much to make up in air.
“Facing off against the same two teams from our last match, we know what to expect out of those programs,” head coach Valerie Boothe said. “We are focusing on coming together as a team and doing what we know we can do.”
In other Rebel rifle news, junior Abbey Stanec was recently inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society.
Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi is both the nation’s oldest and the university’s oldest and most selective academic honor society. The Ole Miss chapter was founded in 1959.
Inductees must be juniors in the top 7.5 percent of their class or seniors or graduate students in the top 10 percent of their class.
Stanec holds a 3.84 GPA in Biology and has been named a Collegiate Coaches Association Academic All-American twice.
