Ole Miss Sport Club News 2010-11

The Ole Miss Paintball team traveled to Chattanooga, TN on March 26-27, 2011 to compete in the MiLP Spring Break Open, Division 4 Race-To 2. The weather was continuous thundershowers and deposited almost 2 inches of water onto the field throughout Saturday and temperatures of 50° F kept all players miserable. The event went on though, and despite the terrible conditions, it ran smoothly and without officiating problems. Ole Miss played great throughout the day, despite our unfamiliarity with the Race-To 2 format. In prelims, Ole Miss beat Torque (2-1), Dark Horse (2-0), and NWA United (2-0). The only game in prelims that we lost was to Carolina Crusaders, which beat us in an evenly matched knock-down drag-out fight that lasted nearly to time. Ole Miss made it into post-prelim play but were not able to secure a bye to the semifinals, and so played against High-5 Black and lost 1-2 again, which allowed us to only gain up to 4th place. The last match of the day, for 3rd place, between Magically Delicious and Ole Miss was by far the most exciting match of the day, with each team scoring a point, forcing the match into sudden death overtime. Ole Miss quickly eliminated 2 of the opposing players, but failed to capitalize on the advantage and were whittled down to two players over 7 minutes. In an attempt to make a potential game-winning move, Hal Reece bunkered and eliminated one player, but getting eliminated in the process, leaving Daniel Warren alone against two Magically Delicious players after 12 minutes of time! After 2 more minutes of what could only be described as a “war of attrition” both Magically Delicious players ran out of paintballs, but were in possession of the flag. Daniel had 4 paintballs left and proceeded to run down 1 opposing player, shooting him point-blank. Upon chasing the last opposing player (in possession of the flag) around a bunker, he was able to avoid Daniel only long enough to make a headfirst dive into the flag station, ending the game as Daniel brought up his marker to shoot him out! The final game time was 15 minutes, about 5 times longer than a normal point length in this format!!!

Division 3, Race-To 2 (Ole Miss)
Coming off of an agonizing finish in D4, the Rebels came out swinging in D3, along with the sun and nice, warm weather. Ole Miss was the only team to go undefeated in prelims, beating out BEAST MODE (2-1), Carolina Kartel (2-1), LAST CALL (2-1), and NCPA All-Stars (2-0). Ole Miss received a bye to the semifinals but lost their momentum against the eventual champions, Chattown, losing 2-1 after almost coming back from a very fast and aggressive speed point. Ole Miss played against Carolina Kartel for third place, easily defeating them 2-0 to clutch the third place plaque. Ole Miss played very well in this event, beating out both PR1ME and NCPA All-Stars, who placed 3rd and 5th, respectively, at the PSP Galveston national event in early March. Both of these teams are regarded as some of the best Division 3 paintball players in the country and both teams were eclipsed by the talent and skill of the Ole Miss Rebel paintball team. Both days of the tournament were run extremely well and a great deal of credit must be given to Insane Paintball of Chattanooga, as well as the pro team Chattanooga CEP, who we owe a lot to for this event and throughout the years we have played with them.
