    RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC State rifle team will make its first trip to Alaska in the history of the program this weekend when it travels to the University of Alaska at Fairbanks. The squad will compete against Ole Miss on Friday and the Nanooks on Saturday, with both matches slated to begin at noon (ET) at the E.F. Horton Rifle Range. 

    “Everyone is really excited about this trip, since it will be the first time NC State has ever gone to Alaska for a match,” said head coach Keith Miller. “It's something we've been working on for three or four years and we were finally able to make it happen.  We hope to make the trip every three years or so going forward - at least that's our plan right now.”

    The Wolfpack opened the season two weeks ago at the first South Eastern Air Rifle Conference (SEARC) match at VMI. The Pack finished first with a team score of 2322, while only competing in the air rifle competition. 

    Sophomore Daniel Cliff paced the squad at the meet with a match-high score of 585. Redshirt senior Amy Roderer finished closely behind with a personal-best score of 582 to finish second.

    “While we had a warm up in air rifle at VMI two weeks back, this weekend we'll shoot two full matches of both smallbore and air rifle,” said Miller. “I'm really curious to see our smallbore scores, as we've had some really good practices lately. I think everyone is ready.”

    Friday’s competition against the Ole Miss Rebels will be the Pack's first Great America Rifle Conference (GARC) match of the season. 

    “We're expecting to see some great scores from our team again this year, so we hope to start off strong against Ole Miss on Friday,” Miller added.
