NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Allegra Wells claimed the women’s long jump title to highlight Ole Miss track & field’s day one performance at the Meyo Invitational on Friday.

Ole Miss went 1-3-5 in the women’s long jump, with Wells leaping to a winning mark of 19-9.5. That’s just two inches off the personal best for the former Rebel volleyball standout. Marci Morman claimed third place with a personal-best 19-5.5, while Deonna Walton finished fifth at 19-5.25.

Freshman sprinter Asia Cooper clocked the fastest 60-meter time in the prelims with a 7.50 and followed that up with the second-fastest semifinal time of 7.52 to advance to Saturday’s final. Jasmine Williams will join her in the final after placing sixth in the semifinals with a time of 7.65.

Jazmin Miller continued her strong season with a third-place showing in the women’s weight throw (61-11).

On the men’s side, most of the top athletes for the 17th-ranked Rebels will be competing on Saturday, but Ricky Robertson did turn in a fourth-place showing in the long jump (23-11). He is tied for the top NCAA mark in the high jump and ranks third nationally in the triple jump this indoor season.
