Rifle Opens 2014 in Oxford

By NU Athletic Communications

No. 5 Nebraska at No. 12 Ole Miss

Date: Sunday, Jan. 19

Start Time: 8 a.m.

Location: Oxford, Miss

The Nebraska rifle team resumes competition this Sunday, Jan. 19 when the team travels to Oxford, Miss to face No. 12 Ole Miss.  

“We are excited to get the spring semester underway in our conference match against Ole Miss,” Coach Underwood said. “We took advantage of the winter break to rest and refocus, and so far at practice it looks to have been a great decision.” 

The team finished 2013 with a win against Ohio State. Sunny Russell, Kelsey Hansen, Denise Martin and Rachel Martin helped the Huskers upset the Buckeyes in that match.

Ole Miss ended the first half of the season at the Gamecock Invitational where the team finished fifth.

Last season the Huskers defeated Ole Miss in Oxford by 20 points and are looking to bring home another victory.

“Ole Miss is another team that is in the hunt to earn a bid for NCAA championships so we will have to perform at the same level we ended the fall semester,” Underwood said.  “I am looking for our team to really focus on air rifle this semester and learn to finish strong.”

The match is set to begin at 8 a.m.
