LEXINGTON, Ky. - Two Rebels scored team points at the SEC Outdoor Championships and two more produced qualifying times in prelims on Friday at the Kentucky Track & Field Complex.
Sophomore Nathan Loe got the Rebel men on the board with a seventh-place finish in the hammer throw, resulting in two team points (the top eight finishers in each event score points). A University of Illinois transfer and native of Acworth, Georgia, Loe heaved his hammer a distance of 201-7 and scored the Rebels' first points in the event since James Maloney in 2007.
Senior Mary Ashton Nall finished off a season-best two-day performance in the heptathlon to place sixth overall with 5,390 points. The Auburn, Alabama, native posted the second-best javelin throw of the day (117-9) and finished strong with the fourth-best 800-meter run (2:17.28). She scored three points for the Rebel women.
Freshman Jalen Miller and sophomore Holland Sherrer came through with big performances in the prelims to advance to the SEC Championships finals in the men's 200 meters and 800 meters, respectively.
Miller clocked a personal-best 20.76, the third-fastest time in the 200-meter prelims on Friday. The true freshman from Tunica, Mississippi, lowered his previous all-time best (20.85) by almost a tenth of a second. The final will be Sunday at 4:30 p.m. ET/3:30 CT.
Sherrer also had a breakout performance to advance in the 800. He won his heat with a time of 1:49.59, which was seventh-best on the day. The junior college transfer and native of Deerfield, New Jersey, will run in Sunday's final at 3:50 p.m. ET/2:50 CT.
Although he didn't place in the top eight, redshirt-freshman Kevin Conway heaved a personal-best 191-3 in the hammer throw. He moved up to fourth in the Ole Miss record books, improving on his previous best (189-9) by almost two feet.
Saturday's jam-packed day of events starts at 1 p.m. ET/Noon CT with the women's long jump and javelin finals. Other field event finals include the women's high jump, men's long jump and men's discus. Running event prelims include the 1,500 meters, 100- and 110-meter hurdles, 400 meters and 100 meters, while the men's and women's steeplechase finals will close out the day.
