AUSTIN, Texas – Ole Miss athletes broke three school records during a stellar performance at the 86th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays this week.

Sophomores Sam Kendricks and Haley Cutright won their event titles and shattered school records in the men’s pole vault and women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase, respectively. Junior Kayleigh Skinner broke the school record in the women’s 10,000 meters in her first ever attempt at that distance.

Kendricks soared to a world-leading pole vault clearance of 19-0.75 on Friday, the best vault in the NCAA since 1998. It made him the No. 5 vaulter in collegiate history.

Cutright won the steeplechase in 10:21.60 on Thursday to break teammate Katie Breathitt’s school record.

Skinner finished third in the 10,000 meters on Thursday, clocking a time of 35:44.06 that broke a 16-year-old school record by over a minute.

Two Rebels competed on Saturday, the final day of the prestigious meet. Senior Isiah Young placed fifth in the 100 meter final with a time of 10.35, which will rank him among the nation’s leaders this year. Freshman Onyi Afoaku flung the discus a season-best 179-3 to place 12th in the section A competition. He continues to rank second in school history in the event.

Several Rebels also competed in Conway, Ark., at the UCA Open on Saturday. Ole Miss captured three individual titles by Robert Semien in the men’s 110-meter hurdles (personal-best 14.33), Hunter Harrison in the men’s discus (142-8) and Jazmin Miller in the women’s hammer throw (168-11).

Ole Miss will travel to yet another prestigious meet this coming weekend at the Pepsi Florida Relays in Gainesville. The team will return back to Oxford and host back-to-back meets with the Ole Miss Invitational on April 13 and the Mississippi Open on April 20.
