Tyson Invitational Results

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – In the last meet before the Feb. 24-26 Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships, Ole Miss saw a pair of school records fall and some other impressive performances at the prestigious Tyson Invitational, held at the Randal Tyson Track Center.

Senior Isiah Young had the best showing of all Rebels on Saturday in the 200 meters. Young ran a personal-best 21.25 to place seventh and continues to rank fifth-best in school history in the event.

“While we had some performances I was proud of, overall I was disappointed,” Rebels head coach Joe Walker said. “I felt like we were more ready than we performed overall. We have some work to do to be ready for SEC’s.”

Day two also witnessed freshman sensation Sam Kendricks finish fifth in the pole vault championship with a height of 16-07.25, while junior All-American Ricky Robertson finished fifth in the high jump championship with a jump of 7-01.00. Robertson has already automatically qualified for the NCAA Championships in the high jump with a 7-4.25 earlier this year.

Robertson also finished fifth in the triple jump with a career-best leap of 51-11.00, which should rank him in the nation’s top 15 in the event. Sophomore Kentrell Sanders placed eighth (50-01.75).

The Rebel men’s 4x400 meter relay team consisting of Montez Griffin, Creighton Serrette, Carson Blanks and Brian Word earned a sixth-place finish with a time of 3:12.25.

On the women’s side, junior Jazmin Miller placed third in the weight throw with a throw of 62-01.00, while junior Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen earned a top-15 finish in the 800 meter run Olympic Development with a time of 2:11.17.

Senior Aria Gaines and junior Marci Morman both earned top-10 finishes in the triple jump.

On day one of the event, senior Logan Waites broke her own school record in the 5,000 meters with a time of 16:41.27, shattering her old best mark of 17:08.00 set last year. She finished third in a race against some of the nation’s top distance runners.

Also blowing past a school record was the women’s distance medley relay team of Anne Threlkeld, Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen, Tia Leake and Kayleigh Skinner, who raced to a time of 11:53.80 for fourth place. The previous record of 12:00.24 had survived since 1989.

The weekend meet featured 10 top-25 ranked men’s teams and nine top-25 women’s teams. Senior Isiah Young and junior All-American Mike Granger were sensational in the men’s 60 meters on Friday. Young won the finals with a time of 6.66 after he tied his personal best of 6.62 during the preliminaries. Granger finished fourth in 6.70. Both Rebel sprinters already ranked among the nation’s top 15 in the 60 entering the weekend.

Another Rebel who competed in a “Championship” event Friday was senior All-American Caleb Lee in the long jump. He soared through the air with a season-best leap of 25-03.25 to claim second place.
