FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Freshmen helped lead Ole Miss on day three at the SEC Outdoor Track and Field Championships, while the Lady Rebels turned to their jumpers to move up in the team standings.

A pair of freshman, Barnabas Kirui and red-shirt Derek McGuire, turned in second place finishes to score eight points each for the men's team total. Kirui turned in a school record 8:45.61 to finish runner-up in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Kirui broke Farnando Perez's school record of 8:49.88 set in 1995. Kirui's previous best was 8:57.15.

"Barnabas had an outstanding race," said Ole Miss head coach Joe Walker. "He ran a very intelligent race. He is young, but we knew he was this caliber of runner."

Kirui's freshman counterpart Derek McGuire fell just short of his own school record of 59-02.75 in the shot put, set earlier this season. McGuire's mark of 58-05.75 was good enough to finish second overall.

"The pressure of the league is enormous," said Walker. "To have two freshmen step up and finish runner-up is awesome. Barnabas and Derek both handled the pressure great. They both have very bright futures at Ole Miss and in the SEC."

On the women's side, the Lady Rebels turned to their jumpers to move up on day three.

Three Ole Miss women finished in the top eight of the long jump lead by senior Marquita Aldridge, whose mark of 20-09.25 placed her third overall. Amber Bledsoe turned in a personal best and NCAA regional qualifying mark of 20-01.00 to finish fifth and Cachet Murray finished eight with a mark of 19-09.85. The three combined to earn 11 team points for the Lady Rebels.

Sophomore Carmia Carroll also placed seventh in the high jump with a mark of 5-08.75.

Not to be outdone the Ole Miss men earned two top eight finishes in the long jump. Charles Bailey and Ed McCall both turned in marks of 24-01.75. The tie was broken by going to the next best jump. Bailey placed sixth and McCall finished eight.

"We have always taken pride in our jumpers," said Walker. "Our kids take pride in up holding our tradition as one of the strongest jump programs in the country. Every one of those kids are tremendous athletes and it showed today."

Sophomore John Yarbrough finished third overall in the preliminaries of the 110-meter hurdles. Yarbrough's mark of 13.82 advanced him to tomorrow's finals. Jacob Farmer also advanced to tomorrow's finals in the 400 meters with a time of 46.68.

The Ole Miss men sit in seventh place with 20 team points heading into the final day. This would be the Rebels highest finish at the SEC Outdoor Championship since 1997. The Lady Rebels have 15 team points after the third day and are currently in ninth place.

The fourth and final day of the championships conclude tomorrow beginning at noon with the men's discus.
