ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The 15th-ranked Ole Miss women’s track & field squad had another strong day at the New Mexico Classic on Saturday, recording numerous personal bests and some of the best marks in the nation in a couple of events.

“The meet went really well,” head coach Connie Price-Smith said. “The first day went very well. Today could’ve been a little better, but overall I was pleased with how our athletes came out and competed.

“The environment was good. There was a lot of solid competition here. With the altitude, there were a couple athletes who complained about it being hard to breathe, but for the most part I think competing against good teams outweighed the altitude challenges.”

On the weekend, the Rebel men and women combined for three event victories, one school record, four new top-15 NCAA marks and 30 indoor personal bests. And that was without the distance runners, who will return to action next week.

The shot putters led the way on Saturday. As she has all season, Raven Saunders won the competition, this time with a mark of 18.16m/59-7 – not her best, but still better than any other woman in the NCAA this year. Janeah Stewart, who tied her school record in the weight throw on Friday, heaved a personal-best 16.81m/55-2 in the shot on Saturday, moving her into the NCAA’s top 15 this year. She remains No. 2 in school history in the event.

Ole Miss also received strong performances in the women’s pole vault. Competing against an elite field of collegians and professionals, Lindsey Murray cleared a season-best 4.22m/13-10 to place sixth overall and second among collegians. She ranks ninth in the NCAA this year. Callie Watson and Katy McAuley both cleared PRs of 4.02m/13-2.25, moving them into a tie for fourth-best in school history and 36th in the NCAA this year.

A day after running an altitude-converted 8.60 and advancing to the finals of the 60-meter hurdles, freshman Jeanette Paul placed sixth in the final with a time of 8.73. Her 8.60 ranks her tied for sixth-best in school history.

In the 400 meters, both Mercedes Mattix (56.03) and Aisha Newsome (56.06) clocked personal bests to place seventh and eighth, respectively.

The men were led on Saturday by shot putters Brian Williams (fifth place, 17.26m/56-7.5) and Kevin Conway (seventh place, 16.12m/52-10.75).

Ole Miss will travel to a pair of meets next weekend – the Iowa State Classic (Ames, Iowa) and Music City Challenge (Nashville, Tenn.). Those will be the final tuneups before the Feb. 24-25 Southeastern Conference Championships in Nashville.
