LEXINGTON, Ky. - Ricky Robertson just continues to make history for the Ole Miss track and field program.

The junior All-American won the high jump Saturday, his third straight SEC indoor title and fifth straight overall in the high jump, to lead Ole Miss during day two of the 2012 Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships.

"We had a great day, scoring-wise, advancing to finals tomorrow and lots of personal records out of most of the team," Rebel head coach Joe Walker said. "I am really proud of our teams."

Through four events, the Ole Miss women sit in fifth place with 16 points heading into tomorrow's final day of competition, while the No. 22 nationally ranked Rebel men stand in fourth in the conference standings following the completion of five events.

A native of Hernando, Miss., Robertson is just the third athlete in SEC history to win three or more men's indoor high jump titles, while his winning leap of 7-4.5 tied the E.J. Nutter Field House facility record and ranks him fifth in the NCAA this year. He also placed fourth in the long jump on Saturday with a jump of 24-09.75.

"Everyone knows how tough the SEC is," Walker said. "Ricky is such a team guy, competing in three events this weekend. He's an amazing athlete."

In addition to Robertson's scoring in the long jump, senior All-American Caleb Lee also performed well with a fifth-place showing on a leap of 24-7.

The Rebels also saw outstanding performances in the 60 meter prelims. Senior Isiah Young finished fourth in the prelims clocking a 6.65, while junior All-American Mike Granger was eighth running a 6.74. Young entered the day ranked eighth nationally in the 60 meters, while Granger is 17th. Both will compete in tomorrow's finals.

Young also finished third in the 200 meter prelims. He entered the meet ranked 28th nationally in the event and clocked a personal-best time Saturday of 21.15, which places him fourth-best in school history in the event.

In addition to Robertson and Lee scoring points for the Rebel men, freshman Malcolm Davis notched one point with a tie for seventh in the high jump, clearing a height of 6-9.50.

Sophomore Dante Oliver advanced to tomorrow's finals of the 400 meters by placing eighth in the prelims with a time of 47.31. Freshman Robert Semien advanced to tomorrow's finals of the 60-meter hurdles with a ninth-place result in the prelims, clocking a time of 8.32.

On the women's side, junior Neal Tisher led the Rebels Saturday, shattering her previous school record in the pole vault with a height of 13-10.50 to place fifth in the event.

The Rebel women also received strong scoring contributions in the long jump. Juniors Allegra Wells and Deonna Walton both scored for Ole Miss, with Wells placing fourth with a mark of 19-11.50 and Walton finishing sixth with a distance of 19-08.25. Wells, a standout volleyball player for the Rebels, was particularly impressive in her first SEC track championships.

In her first SEC Indoor Championships, freshman Taryn Hartfield recorded a personal best in the 60-meter hurdles prelims. Clocking an 8.51 prelim time, Hartfield now ranks third-best in the event in school history.

Saturday also saw junior Anne Threlkeld run a personal-best mile time of 4:59.14, which now ranks her third-best in school history in the event. Senior Kristin Bridges also ran a personal-best Saturday in the 400 meters. Her 400-meter time of 54.41 Saturday continues to rank her fifth-best in school history.
