WALNUT, Calif. – Freshmen ruled the day for the No. 11 Ole Miss men at the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays on Friday, highlighted by Sean Tobin’s school record in the 1,500 meters.
Tobin, a native of Clonmel, Ireland, shattered the 29-year-old Rebel record in the 1,500 meters by more than two seconds with his run of 3:42.07. The previous mark of 3:44.32 was set by Doug Smith in 1985.
Tobin, who placed eighth in the “elite” division race against other top collegians and some professionals, moves up to No. 5 in the NCAA this year. He already ranked top 10 nationally in the 800.
Robert Domanic (Lewisville, Texas) kept the freshman theme going with a personal-best time in his first college outdoor 5,000 meters. His time of 14:08.78 placed him 18th in the “Olympic development elite” division and ranks him fifth in Ole Miss history.
Two more freshmen showed out in the short sprints on Friday. Jalen Miller (Tunica, Miss.) placed fourth in the 100 with a time of 10.30 and seventh in the 200 at 21.01. Kailo Moore (Rosedale, Miss.) was 10th in the 200 with a personal-best 21.07 that ranks him top 15 in school history.
Freshman Trevor Gilley (Southlake, Texas) achieved a personal best in the “open” division of the 1,500 meters. His placed ninth with a time of 3:47.43 that ranks him top 10 in school history.
Although he’s not a freshman, Robert Semien (Houston, Texas) performed well in the 110-meter hurdles. The junior won a bronze medal with a time of 14.07. He set a personal best with a time of 13.91 last week at the Alabama-Mississippi Border Clash.
The War Eagle Invitational in Auburn, Ala., also got underway on Friday. Nathan Loe (Acworth, Ga.) won the hammer throw with a heave of 200-9 before the rest of the meet was suspended until Saturday due to weather.
