Rod McCravy Memorial Meet Results

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Ole Miss track and field team put together a fantastic performance this weekend at the Rod McCravy Memorial meet hosted by the University of Kentucky at Nutter Field House.

Senior Isiah Young had a breakthrough performance in the short sprints on Kentucky's oversized, flat indoor track to lead the No. 21 nationally ranked Ole Miss men.

A former standout at Allen Community College, Young claimed first place in the 60 meters and 200 meters on Saturday. He burst into the top five in the school record books with a 60-meter time of 6.62, which also ranks him top five in the nation this year. He later won the 200 meters with a time of 21.28, which ranks him top five in school history in the event and top 15 in the nation this year.

Senior All-American Caleb Lee claimed the long jump title with a measurement of 24-08.25, which ranks him 19th in the country this year. Junior All-American Ricky Robertson came in second with a jump of 24-01.75.

Ole Miss was very impressive in the jumps all weekend and went 1-2-3 in the men’s triple jump. Sophomore Kentrell Sanders won the event (50-09.25), while junior Morris Kersh was runner-up (50-08.25) and Robertson finished third (50-07.50). All three of them produced marks that rank them in the top 25 nationally this year.

Freshman Sam Kendricks once again continued to perform above his school classification. The Oxford, Miss., native earned a third-place finish in the pole vault with a height of 16-11.50. He came into the meet ranked top 20 nationally in the event.

On the women’s side, junior Jazmin Miller placed second in the weight throw behind national leader Jeneva McCall of Southern Illinois with a personal-best mark of 64-04.00, which continues to rank her second in the weight throw in the school record book. Miller now ranks top 25 in the nation in the event.

Junior Neal Tisher captured the pole vault title with a height of 13-02.25, and junior Deonna Walton won the long jump with a jump of 19-09.50 (ranks her 32nd nationally).

Junior Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen continues to perform well in the 800 meters this year. Her personal-best time of 2:10.51 on Saturday gave her a third-place finish in Lexington and ranks her among the country’s top 40 this season.

Junior All-American Marci Morman produced a third-place finish in the triple jump (40-04.00), while senior Kristin Bridges finished third in the 400 meters with a time of 54.80.

Ole Miss saw stellar performances in the mile by both Kelsey Breathitt and Anne Threlkeld. Breathitt clocked a personal-best 5:03.49 to continue to rank top five in school history in the event, and Threlkeld turned in a 5:07.43.

Senior Logan Waites placed fifth in the 3,000 meters with a time of 9:48.47, while sophomore Kayleigh Skinner finished in the top 10 also with a personal-best time of 9:52.55. Waites already holds the school record in the event (9:41.22), while Skinner now ranks second all-time among Ole Miss athletes in the 3,000 meters.

The Rebels will take a break from competition next weekend and return to action Feb. 11 at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark.
