ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Ole Miss athletes posted a pair of individual victories and numerous personal bests in a strong first day at the New Mexico Classic indoor track & field meet on Friday.

For the No. 15 Ole Miss women, all three weight throwers had personal-best performances. Janeah Stewart led the way by matching her own school record with a victorious toss of 21.86m/71-8.75 that ranks her No. 3 in the NCAA this year. Raven Saunders unleashed a huge PR of 21.67m/71-1.25, almost a three-foot improvement on her previous best, that will move her into the top 10 nationally this year. Annika Larsson threw 17.05m/55-11.25, which ranks her No. 6 in school history.

Kevin Conway won the men’s weight throw with a personal-best heave of 20.65m/67-9, just seven inches away from the school record set by Stacy Andrews in 2003. Conway moves up to 20th in the nation as of Friday evening.

Another big indoor personal best came from freshman Kaira Simmons, who broke through with a long jump of 6.09m/19-11.75 that moves her into the top 10 in school history and top 30 or 40 in the NCAA this year.

Nearly all of the women’s sprinters had season or personal bests on Friday. Breanna Tate placed fourth of 79 runners in the 200 meters with a season-best 23.93 (converted from 23.86 for altitude), while her twin sister Deanna Tate ran a personal-best 24.19 to place 11th.

Shannon Ray and Breanna Tate made it through the 60-meter prelims to Saturday’s semifinals with altitude-adjusted times of 7.52 and 7.62, respectively.

Freshman Jeanette Paul advanced to Saturday’s final in the 60-meter hurdles with a personal-best time of 8.60 that ties her for sixth-best in school history.

Three men, all freshmen, also achieved personal bests and advanced through in the 60 meters. Andrew Raspo led the way with a time of 6.84 that ranks him 12th in school history. Courtland Barnes ran 6.92 and Manny Foster 6.93.

Other notable PRs for the men on Friday included Barclay Angle and Cole Colozzo in the pole vault, each clearing 5.00m/16-4.75 that ties them for sixth in school history. Foster achieved an indoor personal best of 7.27m/23-10.25 in the long jump.  

Another full day of action is in store for the Rebels on Saturday. Live coverage will be on the subscription-based web streaming site, www.FloTrack.org.

Among the women’s teams in attendance are No. 4 USC, No. 6 Texas, No. 7 LSU, No. 15 Ole Miss, No. 25 New Mexico, Texas Tech and UTEP. Men’s teams include No. 3 LSU, No. 8 USC, No. 14 Texas Tech, No. 16 Texas, Ole Miss, New Mexico and UTEP.
