AUBURN, Ala. -
 Sophomore Dempsey McGuigan kicked off the Tiger Track Invitational in a big way for Ole Miss, breaking his own school record in the first event of the meet.

McGuigan picked up a win in the hammer throw by breaking his own school record with a throw of 69.59m/228-04. That distance would be good for No. 6 in the NCAA in the hammer throw entering this weekend.

Ole Miss placed three in the top eight in the hammer throw, with Nathan Loe (60.93m/199-11) finishing seventh and Kevin Conway (58.36m/191-06).

Both racing in their first 5000m of the season, junior Haley Ward (17:24.41) and sophomore Elisabeth Gaillet (17:31.95) finished third and fourth respectively.

Sophomore Lanae Newsome posted a season-best leap of 12.04m/39-06 in the triple jump, which was good for ninth.

The majority of the Tiger Track Classic takes place on Saturday, with the first event beginning at 10:30 a.m.
