BATON ROUGE, La. – Ole Miss Track & Field kept its record-breaking ways alive on Friday with two more school records on the first day of the SEC Relays.

Junior Brian Williams shattered his own record in the discus with an NCAA-leading throw, while the women’s sprint medley relay also took down the all-time best Rebel mark.

On the day, Ole Miss athletes set seven lifetime outdoor bests while competing against eight other league schools for relay bragging rights.

Leading the way for the 17th-ranked Ole Miss men, Williams uncorked a huge personal best of 64.12m/210-4 to win the discus competition. The top mark in the NCAA this year, it broke his own school record and LSU’s Bernie Moore Stadium record that had stood since 1985. The Warren, Michigan, native now ranks No. 10 in the world this year.

Senior Barclay Angle also achieved a personal best in the pole vault, finishing fourth with a clearance of 5.07m/16-7.5. That ranks him sixth-best in school history.

The No. 17-ranked women had an equally strong day on LSU’s campus, including a school record by the sprint medley relay squad of Shannon Ray, Breanna Tate, Jolie Carbo and Maddie McHugh. The quartet finished third with a time of 3:48.14 in the event that has legs of 200, 200, 400 and 800 meters. The previous record of 3:48.94 had stood since 2011.

Junior thrower Janeah Stewart had a very strong day, finishing runner-up in both the discus (56.00m/183-9) and hammer throw (64.00m/210-0). Both marks were just below her season bests that rank her top 10 nationally in those events.

Two others moved up in the top 10 of the school record books – Aisha Newsome in the 400 meters (personal-best 54.34, No. 8 in school history) and Jeanette Paul in the 100-meter hurdles (personal-best 13.88, No. 8 in school history).

The second day of the SEC Relays begins at 10:30 a.m. CT with the men’s hammer throw and continues throughout the early afternoon.
