OXFORD, Miss. – On the heels of their win over then No. 5 Murray State, the Ole Miss women’s rifle team moved back into the top 10 at No. 9, as they get set to face No. 1 West Virginia and No. 13 North Carolina State in two conference matches this weekend in Morgantown, W.V.

The Rebels will take on the Mountaineers Friday all day and then face N.C. State Saturday.

Ole Miss shot an aggregate score of 4632 last weekend and beat No. 5 Murray State (4628). Jacksonville State, ranked No. 4, won with a score of 4654 at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center.

Junior Melissa Quartarone led the Rebels with a total score of 1163 including a team-high 578 in smallbore.  Alivia Yeager posted an 1161, including a team-leading 588 in air rifle.

“I feel confident about the team going into this weekend,” head coach Valerie Boothe said.  “It’s our chance to get a good road number in the books.  Facing two GARC opponents, the girls are up for it and excited to compete.”
