Women ' s Rifle Reaching to set new school records, the lady rebels finished their best ever in the ncaa collegiate sectional. The 1999-2 000 Lady Rebel Rifle Team, led by Coach Valerie Boothe, had a very successful fourth season. With a 3-1-1 record in match play, the ladies reached a new school record for high- est team air rifle score with a 1459 at the Buckeye Invitational in Columbus, Ohio. On November 21, the team placed sixth at Jacksonville State. Sadly, they fell one point short from setting the new school record for air rifle. The team also finished their best ever in the NCAA Collegiate Sectional. The girls placed sixth in smallbore rifle, with a score of 4034, and seventh in the sir rifle, with a score of 1409. Along with these team accomplishments the Lady Rebel Rifle team also had numerous individual standouts. Team Captain Jessica Crockett, a senior from Brown Deer, Wisconsin, scored 548 in her final match and won her first career match against Centenary at home. Maranda Stockton placed second in the final competition, while Samantha Bell finished fourth and Jennifer Curry finished sixth. With a score of 374.8, Stockton, who is from Livingston, TN, obtained the highest air rifle mark average ever held by a Lady Rebel. She also broke the record for the highest Ole Miss individual high score with a score of 383, which she reached at the Tiger Invitational at Memphis. Stockton entered the 2000 season as a freshman and was one of the top junior shoot- ers in Tennessee. -WRITTEN BY KELLEY HUNSBERGER

Maranda Stockton W - O tP Sitting in front of the fine, with diary in hand, f sag one final prayer, hoping that today will be a good day. I look up and glance around the range at my teammates and coach, and smile as I realize how far we have come in such a short period of time. It seems like just yesterday I was picking up a gun for the first time, and now I am shooting for one of the fastest growing programs in the nation. I allow my mind to wander back to dream of Olympics one final time, and take a deep breath. I am ready to be the best today. With the proper calls from the Vange Officer, we are directed onto the line and into position to begin shooting. At the sound of " Commence -firing!, " I lift my rifle to my shoulder, and begin the long journey toward my goal: today I will beat myself. As I look through the sight at that old familiar bull, I listen to Coach ' s last words of encouragement again: You can do it, don ' t settle for any- thing less than the best. " I align my sights and there it is, the perfect shot. Steady, aim, fire 3ullseye! Qyod; again. I lower my rifle, reload and begin the process again. That was only the first match; 39 more and we can call it a day.... The pressure is on; everyone is doing very well, but i have a dream. I will succeed. I will be the best. One last shot. Again I lift my gun to my tired shoulder, and as I lower my hot sweaty cheek down onto the gun, I hear that calm voice of encouragement whispering in my ear, Don ' t give up! " I close my eyes for a moment and imagine that perfect shot again. As i open my eyes it is there again; wait, wait, fire $ ullseye! I win again! I may not have won the match today, but I beat the toughest competitor out there: myself. And I will be content with that until another day when I require the best I have to offer again, when I reach for my dreams. As I leave the line and look up at the coach, I know we have done it again and will take another proud victory back home with us to share with those who love us and support us. ' Rifle ' Diary ft
