SOUTH BEND, Ind. – A breakthrough performance by the Ole Miss weight throwers on Friday highlighted day one of the Meyo Invitational, hosted by Notre Dame.

As she has all season, sophomore Raven Saunders stole the show. But this time, it wasn’t in her signature event, the shot put. Instead, Saunders spun and whirled the 20-pound chained weight to a distance of 20.78m/68-2.25 that overtook the school record by a foot-and-a-half and ranks her among the top 15 in the NCAA this year. Her mark tied for the best of the day at the Loftus Sports Center, but she officially was awarded second place on a tiebreaker. The previous Ole Miss record was set by All-American Juliana Smith at the 2011 NCAA Indoor Championships.

Later in the evening, all three Ole Miss men recorded personal bests in the weight throw, including massive heaves by sophomore Dempsey McGuigan and junior Kevin Conway. McGuigan achieved a throw of 20.46m/67-1.5 that was almost three feet better than he had ever done before. Conway’s 20.43m/67-0.5 was a whopping three feet, 10-and-a-half inches farther than his previous best. Both marks rank them among the top 30 in the NCAA this year. Senior Nathan Loe also produced a personal best of 19.24m/63-1.5.

Out of the 27 Ole Miss athletes who competed on Friday, an amazing 17 of them achieved personal bests in one or more events.

Two of those were women’s pole vaulters in redshirt-freshman Katy McAuley and junior Callie Watson. McAuley cleared 3.85m/12-7.5 for a new personal record, while Watson did so by going over 3.70m/12-1.5. They rank third and fourth in school history, respectively.

On the track, four women’s sprinters advanced to Saturday’s semifinals in the 60 meters, three of them running their best times ever. Senior Khadijah Suleman and sophomore Nicole Henderson both won their heats and clocked PRs of 7.48. Sophomore Shannon Ray also won her heat in 7.58, and junior Breanna Tate ran a personal-best 7.59 to qualify.

On the men’s side, senior Darryl Brown won his 60-meter heat in 6.92 to advance to Saturday’s semifinals.

Saturday’s action gets underway at 8:45 a.m. CT and run through mid-afternoon. Some events to watch are the women’s shot put (Saunders), women’s seeded pole vault (Lindsey Murray), men’s high jump (Branden Greene and Adam Aguirre), men’s Meyo Mile (Trevor Gilley), men’s Ryan Shay 3,000 meters (MJ Erb, Wesley Gallagher, Trevor Gilley), women’s 800-meter invitational (Leanne Zimmer) and men’s 800-meter invitational (Derek Gutierrez).
