– Ole Miss track and field wrapped up a busy weekend of action across three time zones with final days of action at the Millrose Games in New York, the Don DeNoon Invite at Southern Illinois and the New Mexico Classic out west.

Senior All-American distance runners Robert Domanic and Sean Tobin represented Ole Miss at the prestigious Millrose Games at The Armory in New York, both running in highly-competitive mile races.

Tobin opened the day with a fourth-place finish in the invitational mile, running an all-time collegiate best time of 3:58.28 to break his own school record of 3:59.91 from the 2014 season. Tobin was steady with around a 59-second split at each 400, keeping pace with a tight bunch in the top four spots.

Tobin, who earned All-American honors in the cross country season with a 12th-place finish at the NCAA Championships, now ranks No. 5 nationally in the mile in his first race of the indoor season. His all-time career-best, however, is 3:57.00, which was run out of season last summer in Ireland for a third-place finish at the Cork City Sports meet.

Domanic, meanwhile, represented Ole Miss as one of two collegians in the historic Wanamaker Mile, the classic closing event of the Millrose Games each year. Domanic jumped right into the lead pack at the gun, holding steady in second place with a 59.71 first lap and a 1:57 interval at 800, but around the 1K mark the leader, Chris O’Hare, pushed the pace out hard and Domanic fell back to 10th overall at 4:06.02.

Ole Miss had another solid outing at Southern Illinois’ Don DeNoon Invite, with the women finishing third overall and the men fifth despite a low number of entries.

Senior Janeah Stewart was the top collegian in the shot put, completing yet another weight throw-shot put sweep. Stewart, who last night recorded the best mark in the weight throw in the NCAA in 12 years, threw a two-foot season-best 17.12m (56-02.00) for the win in the shot, trailing only professionals and Ole Miss volunteer coaches Jeneva Stevens (18.10m/59-04.75) and Jessica Ramsey (17.64m/57-10.50, SB, 4th U.S.). Stewart now ranks No. 7 in the NCAA this season in the shot to go along with her NCAA-leading weight throw mark of 23.83m (78-02.25).

Senior All-American Brian Williams took runner-up honors in the men’s shot put, throwing 18.46m (60-06.75).

Two Rebel women advanced to the 60-meter dash finals, with Alia Holmes (fourth, 7.70) and T’Aja Cameron (fifth, 7.77) finishing back-to-back. Both ran career-bests in the prelims, with Holmes running 7.67 and Cameron 7.72.

Other Rebels putting in good performances at SIU included: Orianna Shaw in the women’s 400-meter (first, 57.49); Alvin Westbrook in the men’s 200-meter (second, 22.57); and Andrew Raspo in the men’s 60-meter dash finals (fourth, 6.88, SB).

There was also a Rebel delegation of pole vaulters and jumpers out west at the New Mexico Classic.

Senior Lindsey Murray improved yet again in the pole vault, taking fifth place at a season-best 4.17m (13-08.25). Murray moves up to 18th in the NCAA with today’s clearance and also helped lead a slew of Rebel season-bests in the vault today, as Nicole Kallenberger and Katy McAuley both tied for eighth at a season-best 3.92m (12-10.25).

Two Rebels put up top-five finishes in the triple jump, with senior Lanae Newsome finishing fifth in the women’s triple jump at 12.20m (40-00.50) and freshman Allen Gordon taking fifth in the men’s triple at 14.88m (48-10.00) in his first-career collegiate attempt in the event.

Ole Miss will split squad again next week for the Iowa State Classic in Ames, Iowa, and the Music City Challenge at Vanderbilt University on Feb. 9-10.
