COLUMBIA, Mo. –Isiah Young broke his own school record in the 100 meters with a 10.05 in the preliminaries to lead Ole Miss at the SEC Outdoor Championships on Saturday.
Young, who qualified in the 200 meters during Friday’s prelims, was one of two Rebels on Saturday to advance to the finals, along with Robert Semien in the 110-meter hurdles.
Young bested his time of 10.07 from the recent Drake Relays to break his own school record. His 10.05 was the third-fastest qualifying time on Saturday and also the third-fastest in the NCAA this year. The senior from Junction City, Kan., will run in the 100 final at 4:20 p.m. on Sunday and the 200 final at 5:20. He is the defending SEC outdoor champion in the 200.
Semien, a sophomore from Houston, Texas, was seventh among qualifiers in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.14, just off his personal best of 14.10. He will run in the final at 3:40 p.m. on Sunday.
The top eight in each event score points for their teams during the SEC meet and several Rebels were just shy of scoring points on Saturday, including a ninth-place effort from Haley Cutright in the women’s steeplechase (10:50.58) and 10th-place performances by Malcolm Davis in the men’s long jump (24-3.75), Taryn Hartfield in the women’s 100-meter hurdles (13.79) and Allegra Wells in the women’s long jump (19-10.75). Three more Rebels came in 11th in their events – Benjamin Lapane in the men’s javelin (195-5), Marci Morman in the women’s long jump (19-8.25) and Anne Threlkeld in the women’s steeplechase (10:56.24).
