Jerry Crowe and William McMillan continued to set a hot pace, leading Parris Island's indoor rifle team to a 1892 — 1813 victory over the University of South Carolina this week.

Crowe bettered his previous high score by two points, shooting 383 out of a possible 400.

McMillan, the U.S. International and Olympic team shooter posted a 380.

Jesse Davenport and Al Estes shot 377 for the second consecutive time to tie for third place for Parris Island.

Arthur Snyder rounded out the top five, posting a 375 score.

The Marines are slated to fire a return match with Georgia Tech here Saturday, in what probably will be the final match of the season.
