ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Several Ole Miss Rebels achieved personal-best marks in the team’s last meet before the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships on Friday night at the Don Kirby Elite Invitational, hosted by the University of New Mexico.

The 17th-ranked Ole Miss men were competing against the likes of nationally ranked teams in No. 5 Arizona State, No. 10 Arizona, No. 18 Stanford, No. 21 Kansas State and No. 24 Northern Arizona, while the Rebel women squared off against ranked squads in No. 12 California, No. 13 Arizona, No. 16 Stanford, No. 17 Arizona State and No. 22 San Diego State.

Four Ole Miss women stood out with personal bests and some of the top marks in school history while competing at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Freshman Asia Cooper continued her assault on the 60-meter record books. The Jackson, Miss., native finished runner-up in an elite finals with a personal-best time of 7.29 that ties her for second in school history with Rebel great Brittney Reese. It will also rank her among the best in the nation this year after the weekend meets conclude.

Senior Jazmin Miller was runner-up in the weight throw with a personal-best mark of 64-8.75. She improved her standing as the second-best in school history. The Hiram, Ga., native entered the weekend ranked 33rd nationally with a previous season-best heave of 62-8.75.

Junior Allegra Wells earned fourth place in the long jump with a career-best 20-4.5. The former volleyball standout from Garland, Texas is now fourth-best in school history and should move up in the national rankings. She entered the weekend 35th with a previous season best of 19-9.5.

Sophomore Taryn Hartfield clocked a personal-best 8.41 in the 60-meter hurdles to improve her standing as third-best in school history. She finished fifth in the finals on Friday.

The triple jump was the standout event for the Ole Miss men on Friday, as Rebels finished second and third.

Senior Ricky Robertson was runner-up with a good mark of 52-2.75, just off his season best of 52-8.25 that currently ranks him fourth in the NCAA.

Senior Morris Kersh finished third behind his teammate with a jump of 51-1.75, just off his season best of 51-8.5 that has him tied for ninth in the country.

The Rebels will now set their sights on a big showing in Fayetteville, Ark, for the Feb. 22-24 SEC Championships. Last year, the men finished sixth and the women placed eighth. Already considered among the best, if not the best, track conference in the nation, the SEC will be even tougher this year with the addition of track superpower Texas A&M and Missouri.
