A pair of school records and several personal bests highlighted the Morehead State rifle team's first weekend of action at the Ole Miss and Memphis Open events.

Senior Joe Fischer set the MSU individual combined school record at Mississippi as he fired a 589-air rifle, 583-smallbore scorecard for an 1172 total. Fischer also shattered the school smallbore kneeling record, recording a 199 with 13 center shots. Both records were personal bests too.

Sophomore Alexa Potts led the Eagles at Ole Miss with a personal best 592 in air rifle. Sophomore Jesse Moyer tied her personal best in kneeling at 196 and also shot a personal-best smallbore total of 576. Senior Seth Baker also tallied a personal record, with a 199 in smallbore prone.

Also of note at Mississippi, freshman Ryan Hinson totaled a 1152 in his first collegiate match. In air, he shot a 584 at Ole Miss and a 585 at Memphis. Sophomore Karly Potts (583), Moyer (582), senior Haley Wilson and junior Siarra Crum (582) all also eclipsed the 580 plateau in air at Ole Miss.

The Eagles' next action comes on Saturday at Virginia Military Institute.
