AUSTIN, Texas – The Ole Miss women’s distance runners scorched the track at the 86th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays on Thursday night en route to a pair of school records and some of the best performances in the nation this year.
Sophomore Haley Cutright won the 3,000-meter steeplechase and broke teammate Katie Breathitt’s school record by almost five seconds with a time of 10:21.60. Cutright entered the meet ranked fourth nationally in the event and looks to move up even more, pending results of other meets around the country.
In her first ever attempt at the outdoor 10,000 meters, junior Kayleigh Skinner broke a 16-year-old school record by over a minute with her time of 35:44.06. She finished third out of 26 women in the race and should rank among the nation’s leaders by the end of the weekend.
The 5,000 meters was also a strong race for Ole Miss, as senior Anne Threlkeld clocked a personal-best 17:06.53 to move up to No. 4 in the school record books. She finished seventh out of 25 women in the race.
The two-day women’s heptathlon competition wrapped up on Thursday, and junior Fabia McDonald turned in a 13th-place finish with a total of 5,117 points. That will place her among the national leaders at this early point in the season.
Competition continues Friday and Saturday at the Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas. Events get underway at 9:30 a.m. on Friday and continue through the night. Ole Miss athletes scheduled to compete on Friday include Isiah Young (M 100m), Asia Cooper (W 100m), Sam Kendricks (M pole vault), Morris Kersh (M triple jump), Marci Morman (W triple jump), Allegra Wells (W long jump), Taryn Hartfield (W 100m hurdles), Robert Semien (M 100m hurdles), the men’s and women’s 4x100 and 4x400 meter relays.
