BATON ROUGE, La. - Ole Miss showed Saturday that it belongs among the best track & field teams in the country with a strong performance at the five-team LSU Invitational at Bernie Moore Stadium.

The 16th-ranked Rebel men finished third in the team standings with 115.5 points behind No. 2 Texas A&M (172) and No. 10 LSU (155.5). No. 1 Florida was fourth (102), followed by Miami (26). On the women's side, No. 7 LSU took the title at home with 154 points, followed by No. 3 Texas A&M (144.5), No. 2 Florida (103), Miami (81) and Ole Miss (69.5).

"We knew that coming in here and facing three top-10 teams would be a daunting task," said Rebel head coach Brian O'Neal. "I felt that from the first event all the way to the last, our kids gave great effort. We competed to the best of our abilities today. We're beginning the round the corner at the right time."

The Ole Miss men and women finished the day with numerous personal and seasonal bests, and a total of six event victories.

Junior Phillip Young had an outstanding day for the Rebels in three different events. The Key West, Florida native, who transferred to Ole Miss from Florida State, won the triple jump with a big mark of 52-10.25 that ranks him third in the NCAA this year and sixth in school history. He also placed third in the long jump (24-6.25) and anchored the Rebels 4x400-meter relay squad that finished runner-up in a season-best 3:08.38.

Freshman Robert Domanic was the top collegiate finisher in the 1,500 meters with a personal-best 3:44.78 that ranks him third-best in school history and top 50 in the NCAA this year.

Ole Miss finished 1-2-3 in the 800 meters, led by freshman Sean Tobin in 1:48.79. Junior newcomers Dameon Morgan and Holland Sherrer clocked lifetime bests of 1:49.50 and 1:49.54, respectively.

Other victories for the Rebel men went to sophomore Ian Carter in the 5,000 meters (15:08.80) and junior Sam Kendricks in the pole vault (17-6.5).

Freshman Jalen Miller has made a habit of running fast times every time out, and Saturday was no different. He placed third in the 100 (10.31) and fourth in the 200 (20.90), with both times just off his personal bests. He also helped the 4x100-meter relay team to a time of 40.08 that is just off its season best of 40.06.

The Rebel women got wins from freshman Mary Alex England in the 5,000 (17:47.78) and freshman Saga Barzowski in the 3,000-meter steeplechase (11:39.38). Senior Kayleigh Skinner was runner-up to England in the 5K (17:54.16).

Among the women who achieved personal bests on Saturday were Breanna Tate in the 200 (23.98), Destiny Lundy in the 400 (55.19), Mariah Buford in the 400 (55.37), Kiannah Alexander in the 400 (55.41), Margaret Harkness in the 1,500 (4:44.75) and Kenya Wheeler in both the shot put (44-1.25) and discus (137-11).

This was the final tuneup before the SEC Championships, which will take place May 15-18 in Lexington, Kentucky.
