NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- In her first day wearing an Ole Miss uniform, junior college transfer Janeah Stewart made quite the impression.

Stewart, last year's NJCAA National Women's Outdoor Field Athlete of the Year while at Iowa Central Community College, was on a mission on the opening night of the Rebels' 2017 indoor track & field season at the Commodore Invitational. On her second attempt of the day, she heaved a personal best of 21.83m/71-7.5 to establish the NCAA's best weight throw mark of the year and the best in school history, surpassing Raven Saunders' 2016 best of 20.78m/68-2.25. Stewart's previous best had been 19.77m/64-10.5.

Stewart's finish was the best among collegians in Nashville, behind only Ole Miss volunteer assistant Jessica Ramsey's 23.31m/76-5.75. Next-best among collegians was Saunders' mark of 20.22m/66-4.25, which also places her among the NCAA's best of the young season.

Other standouts for the 21st-ranked Ole Miss women included freshman Ralesheia Gee's personal-best long jump of 6.01m/19-8.75 that earned her fourth place, and senior Breanna Tate finishing seventh out of 77 runners in the 200 meters with a time of 24.23.

The men also had success on the first day of 2017 competition, led by senior Kevin Conway's fourth-place result in the weight throw with a personal-best 20.48m/67-2.25 that moves him up to No. 2 in school history and among the NCAA's best this year.

Another senior, Branden Greene, had a solid opening in the high jump with a second-place finish and a clearance at 2.12m/6-11.5.

A pair of freshmen came out to prove they were ready for the college spotlight. Cole Colozzo placed sixth in the pole vault with a mark of 4.85m/15-11 that ranks him No. 6 in the indoor school record books, and Emanuel Foster placed fifth in the long jump with a leap of 7.16m/23-6.

In all, the first day of competition resulted in 18 indoor personal bests for Ole Miss athletes.

"I think we had a good first day," said head coach Connie Price-Smith. "I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings."

The Rebels are competing against nationally ranked men's teams in No. 1 Florida, No. 3 LSU, No. 13 Tennessee and No. 17 Alabama, as well as Auburn, Georgia Tech, Missouri, UTEP, Western Kentucky and others. Notable women's teams in the field are No. 6 Florida, No. 7 LSU, No. 15 Tennessee, No. 22 Alabama, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Missouri, UTEP, Vanderbilt and Western Kentucky.

A full day of events is slated for Saturday from Vanderbilt's Multipurpose Facility.
