ATLANTA, Ga. -- It was only the second meet of the 2015 outdoor season, but the Ole Miss Rebels are heating up on the track after posting five event victories at the Yellow Jacket Invitational on the Georgia Tech campus.

The Rebel men were led by victories from Jalen Miller in the 100 meters, Robert Semien in the 110-meter hurdles and Adam Aguirre in the high jump. The women added titles from Brooke Feldmeier in the 1500 meters and the 4x100-meter relay team.

Despite resting several normal contributors, the Rebels added a few more veteran players to the mix this weekend than they had in the season opener in Tuscaloosa. The results were favorable, as Ole Miss posted 10 more top-three event finishes in addition to the five victories.

In his 2015 outdoor debut, Indoor All-American Jalen Miller won the 100 meters with a time of 10.50 that will rank him among the early top 30 or 40 in the NCAA. Miller was fifth in the 200 meters at 21.62.

Semien captured the 110-meter hurdle title in 14.21.

Both Aguirre and Branden Greene cleared 6-10.75 in the high jump to place first and second, respectively. The JUCO transfers move into a tie for sixth in the school record books and will be among the NCAA leaders in the event.

Another standout for the men was Indoor All-American Phillip Young, whose long jump of 23-8.25 earned him fifth place.

As she's become accustomed to doing, freshman Brooke Feldmeier broke new ground for the Rebels in her collegiate outdoor debut. The Indoor All-American 800-meter runner competed in her first collegiate 1,500-meter race and won it with at time of 4:31.56 that ranks her fourth in school history.

The Rebels' 4x100-meter relay squad (Nicole Henderson, Shannon Ray, Khadijah Suleman, Jhorden Hunter) won its second straight race in as many weekends by running a time of 45.16. The quartet entered the weekend ranked sixth in the nation with a season-opening time of 44.73 at the Alabama Relays.

The relay's anchor leg, Hunter, also had a shining performance in the 100 meters, finishing runner-up with a season-best 11.69 that ranks her 10th in school history.

Freshman Lanae Newsome had a superb triple jump, leaping 40-6 to place third in the competition. She should rank near the NCAA's top 20 after the showing, and she moved up to No. 8 on the Rebels' all-time outdoor list.

Kierra White and Fabia McDonald performed well in the long jump, registering marks of 19-10.25 and 19-8.25 to finish second and fourth, respectively. Those will rank them among this season's early NCAA leaders.

Ole Miss returns to action next weekend at the Tiger Track Classic in Auburn, Alabama.
