Florida Relays Central | Live Results

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Ole Miss senior Isiah Young ran a pair of strong sprints to lead the way for the Rebels on the first day of the Pepsi Florida Relays on Friday.

The 11th-ranked Ole Miss men’s team and the Rebel women’s team lined up against several of the nation’s elite teams and a few of the top American professionals at the prestigious meet, held at the James G. Pressly Stadium on the campus of the University of Florida.

Young placed sixth in the 100 meters with a season-best time of 10.28. He entered the weekend ranked sixth nationally in the event with a time of 10.30.

The 2012 Olympian from Junction City, Kan., also competed in his signature event, the 200 meters, for the first time this season, clocking a 20.81 for eighth place. That time will also rank him among the NCAA leaders this year.

For the Rebel women, Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen and Asia Cooper turned in quality performances in Gainesville.

Hellberg-Jonsen, a senior from Johanneshov, Sweden, ran a season-best 59.76 in the 400-meter hurdles, which was less than a second from her career best of 58.99. She placed 14th in the event and should improve her national ranking, which was 46th entering the weekend.

Cooper, a freshman from Jackson, Miss., finished 13th in the 100 meters with a time of 11.68. She has a season best of 11.62, which was 34th nationally entering the weekend.

Ole Miss continues competition at the Florida Relays on Saturday, with events beginning at 9 a.m. CT and finishing up around 6:30 p.m. CT.
