Looking to move up in the rankings, the No. 17 ranked Ole Miss rifle team prepares for a match against No. 13 ranked Akron on Saturday. Action will get underway at 9 a.m., at the Patricia C. Lamar National Guard Readiness Center.
In their last action, Rebel sophomore Alison Weisz set the school record in smallbore with a 589 at the Withrow Invitational in Murray, Kentucky. Both Weisz and freshman Jessica Haig lead the Rebels in air rifle with a 585 average.
“This weekend is a chance to move up in the rankings,” head coach Valerie Boothe said. “The team knows what they need to do and each one has been working hard to earn a spot on the counting team. The ladies have really made it hard for us to choose who will represent us. They all know what’s at stake.”
Akron is coming off a tough loss against No. 12 ranked Army. The Zips fell 4,609 to 4,592 last Saturday. Junior Matt Chezem leads the Zips with a 578 average in smallbore and a 587 in air rifle.
