STARKVILLE, Miss. – Participating in its second outdoor meet of the season, the Ole Miss track and field team saw stellar performances by several of its athletes at the SEC/Big Ten Meet held in Starkville Friday.

“We had some outstanding efforts,” Rebel head coach Joe Walker said. “Ricky (Robertson) was excellent in the high jump and Isiah (Young) had two great sprint races. For the women, it was good to go 1-2-3 in the 3,000 meters and the 4x400 meter relay team ran well to win.”

The competition featured Southeastern Conference schools Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Tennessee against Big Ten foes Indiana, Illinois, Ohio State (men), Purdue and Wisconsin.

The SEC women defeated the Big Ten women 390-323, while the Big Ten men outscored the SEC men 400.5-314.5.

The No. 21 nationally ranked Rebel men were led Friday by junior All-American Isiah Young, who won both the 100 and 200 meter races in scintillating fashion. He set the meet record with a time of 10.16 in the 100, which ties him with teammate Mike Granger for third-best in school history in the event and should rank him right near the top of the national leaders this year. He clocked a wind-aided (+4.6) time of 20.50 in the 200 meters, which would have beaten Tony Dees’ 1984 school record of 20.54 if not for the wind reading.

Junior All-American Ricky Robertson won the high jump with a mark of 7-4.5 that should rank him among near the top of the national leaderboard this year.

Freshman Sam Kendricks was victorious in the pole vault. Performing in just his second outdoor collegiate meet, Kendricks eclipsed his height from last week with a 16-6.75 that continues to rank him in the school’s top five in the event. He entered the meet ranked 13th nationally after the opening weekend.

Producing a relay time of 3:11.19, the Rebel men’s 4x400 meter relay team consisting of Dante Oliver, Creighton Serrette, Montez Griffin and Brian Word finished second. Senior All-American Carson Blanks placed second in the 400-meter hurdles running 51.60, which was better than the previous SEC/Big Ten meet record. Freshman Malcolm Davis also placed second in the long jump with a mark of 23-10.

On the women’s side, senior Logan Waites not only won the 3,000 meter crown, but also shattered the school record with a time of 9:45.54. Darlene Calvin’s record of 10:02.60 had stood since 1989. Ole Miss dominated the event on Friday, as Katie Breathitt and Kayleigh Skinner finished second and third by running the second- and third-best times in school history, respectively. Breathitt crossed the finish line in 9:53.31, while Skinner was right behind her at 9:56.45.

Lauren Hollingsworth, Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen, Monica Williams and Kristin Bridges won the 4x400 meter relay with a time of 3:39.60, while Deonna Walton captured the long jump title with a jump of 19-2. Junior Marci Morman claimed the triple jump title with a distance of 39-10.

In addition to anchoring the 4x4 relay team, Bridges also placed third in the 400 meters (54.77) and anchored the 4x100 meter relay to a third-place result (45.74).

Neal Tisher placed second in the pole vault with a clearance of 12-7.5. One week after jumping a 10-6 to rank in the school’s top-five in the pole vault, freshman Ashleigh Culpepper cleared a 10-10 in her second collegiate outdoor meet Friday. She is now tied with teammate Mary Ashton Nall for third-best in school history in the event.

The Rebels will return to action Saturday March 31, when they are scheduled to host the Ole Miss Invitational. Admission is free to all home track and field meets.
