WALNUT, Calif. -- Rebel Savante' Stringfellow and Lady Rebel Teneeshia Jones both had United States Olympic Trails qualifying marks in competition at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif. Sunday afternoon.

In addition, Lady Rebel senior Brandy Mack raced to an NCAA provisional qualifying mark in the 400-meter hurdles, marking the third consecutive year she has had an NCAA mark.

Stringfellow, a junior from Jackson, improved upon his Olympic Trails and NCAA automatic qualifying distance in the long jump, coming just short of Ralph Spry's 17-year old record. Despite leaping to a distance of 27-2.75, Stringfellow came up just short of Arkansas' Melvin Lister, and now ranks second in both the Southeastern Conference and NCAA this season.

Jones, a junior from Shannon, broke her own school record in the 100 meters, racing to a time of 11.39, qualifying her for the Olympic Trails and provisionally qualifying her for the NCAA Championships. In winning the invitational races of both the 100 and 200 meters, Jones also picked up an NCAA provisional qualifying mark in the 200 meters, and fell just .01 shy of a provisional mark in the 100-meter hurdles. In the meet, she defeated professional racers from such teams as Nike and Adidas.

Also competing at Mt. SAC was Lady Rebel Tisha Parker, who took part in four events at the meet. In the 100 meters, Parker finished second in her heat with the fourth best time in school history, while finishing third in her heat of the 200 meters. Parker also finished fifth in her heat of the triple jump and eighth in her heat of the long jump.

The Rebels and Lady Rebels return home to host the Ole Miss Invitational Saturday, the only home track and field event of the year. Action is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. with the field events, while the running events are scheduled to start at 1:00 p.m.
