No. 3 Kentucky Beats Ole Miss

uk wildcats5 300KENTUCKY (1/20/13) - The University of Kentucky rifle team defeated No. 11 Ole Miss on Saturday, shooting a 4670 to the Rebels’ 4611 in Oxford, Miss.

“I was proud of my team today,” UK head coach Harry Mullins said. “We had people step up and deliver when we needed it. It’s always good to get a conference win on the road.”

The Wildcats jumped out to an early lead, leading 2317 – 2281 following smallbore. Senior Heather Greathouse led Kentucky in smallbore, shooting a 586, tying her season high. Junior Emily Holsopple delivered a 581 while freshman Connor Davis shot a 580.

Kentucky continued to add it on in air rifle as the Wildcats shot a 2353 to Ole Miss’ 2330. Davis shot a team-best 594 in air rifle on Saturday, his third consecutive match breaking the 590 barrier. Greathouse broke the 590 barrier for a fourth time on the year with a 590.

Junior Aaron Holsopple shot a 585 in air rifle while senior Stacy Wheatley and Emily Holsopple both shot a 584.

Kentucky was without senior Henri Junghanel Saturday because he is training to represent Germany in the Bavarian Air Gun Championships in Munich, Germany. Emily Holsopple, Connor Davis and Elijah Ellis will be heading to Germany on Sunday for the Bavarian Air Gun Championships.

“The lineup will look a lot different on Sunday with some heading to the Bavarian Air Championships,” Mullins said. “This is great opportunity for some to step in and gain some valuable experience.”

The Wildcats will stay in Oxford to face No. 10 Memphis on Sunday.

“We have another tough contest Sunday against Memphis,” Mullins said. “Conferences matches always bring another element and we’re going to need to be prepared for the challenge.”
