Bulldog Rifle Opens Winter Slate at Mississippi

Oxford, Miss. – The Bulldog Rifle team will take the 11-hour, 648-mile road trip to the campus of the University of Mississippi to take on the sixth ranked Rebels on Saturday. The match will be The Citadel's first of 2012 and their second NCAA open-match of the season.

The Cadets last competition was on Nov. 5, 2011, when they captured first place with a team score of 2243 in the fourth Southeastern Air Rifle conference match of the season in Spartanburg, S.C. The first-place finish was the Bulldogs' first since capturing the conference title in March of last season.

In men's competition, the story has continued to be the outstanding play of the freshman marksmen. A freshman shooter has led The Citadel in each of the first five competitions this season.
