BATON ROUGE, La. – Freshman Sam Kendricks broke the school record in the pole vault to highlight Ole Miss’ performance at the LSU Alumni Gold meet on Saturday.

Kendricks entered the meet ranked ninth nationally and 21st in the world in the pole vault. He was previously second-best in school history after jumping a 17-8.5 at the Florida Relays earlier this month. The Oxford native broke the school record with a height of 17-11 Saturday and improved his national ranking to seventh. The former school record of 17-10 was set by Baker Vinci in 1985.

In his first year of college, Kendricks has now set the school record for indoor and outdoor pole vault.

The Rebel men entered the LSU meet at No. 12 in this week’s USTFCCCA poll, which remains to be their highest national ranking since they finished No. 11 at the end of the 2011 indoor season. 


Besides Kendricks’ record-breaking outing, there were quite a few other Rebel winners at the meet.

Senior All-American Carson Blanks won the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 51.09. The nation’s current top high jump athlete, junior All-American Ricky Robertson, captured the event Saturday, despite only jumping once. Sophomore Kipchirchir Kiptoo won the 5,000 meters with a time of 15:30.51.

The 4x100 meter relay team of Mike Granger, Isiah Young, Montez Griffin and Bradley Shields came in fourth place with a time of 39.93 the group sixth in school history. It’s the second-best time for the Ole Miss men in the even this year.

Young finished third in the 100 meters clocking a time of 10.10. The junior All-American’s time would have been a school record if not for the +5.0 wind mark.

On the women’s side, Neal Tisher claimed the pole vault title with a height of 12-10.75. Kayleigh Skinner finished second in the 1,500 meters running a personal-best time of 4:36.33. She remains ranked fifth-best in school history in the event.

Senior Rachel Jenkins placed second in the long jump with a wind-aided 20-6.25 that would have been her personal best had it been a legal mark.

“I was proud of several performances, but this effort was not as good of a team effort as we’ve had the past few weeks and we had a couple of injuries to key people,” Rebel head coach Joe Walker said.

Granger was battling a hamstring injury, and senior Kristin Bridges was nursing a sore foot in Baton Rouge.

The Rebels will return to action this coming weekend as they will participate in the prestigious Drake Relays held in Des Moines, Iowa.
