GREENSBORO, N.C. – A day after shattering records in the 100 meter first round, Ole Miss senior Isiah Young was on top of his game again Friday to lead the Rebels on the second day of the NCAA East Preliminary Round, hosted by North Carolina A&T University.

Young posted the top qualifying time in both the 100 and 200 meter races on Friday, further cementing his place as a favorite in the national title hunt. He ran 10.01 in the 100 meter quarterfinals to advance to the national finals in Eugene, Ore., which will take place June 5-8. He followed that up by clocking 20.34 in the 200 meter first round and moving on to Saturday’s quarterfinals (6:50 p.m. CT).

On Thursday, Young ran a 9.99 to break his own school record and the NCAA East Prelims record in the 100. He became the 39th American to ever run sub-10 seconds and the first collegian to do it this year. His time of 10.01 on Friday would have broken his previous school record (10.05 at the SEC Championships) had it not been for Thursday’s performance.

He remains fourth in the world in the 100 and third in the world in the 200 this year. His time of 20.20 won him his second straight SEC outdoor title in the 200 just a couple of weeks ago in Columbia, Mo.

Young joined sophomore Sam Kendricks and junior Mary Ashton Nall as Rebels who have advanced to Eugene. Kendricks will compete in the men’s pole vault there, while Nall will take part in the women’s heptathlon.

One other Rebel advanced past the first round on Friday. Sophomore Taryn Hartfield ran a personal-best 13.50 in the 100-meter hurdles to move on to Saturday’s quarterfinals (6:05 p.m. CT). That time keeps her third-best in the Ole Miss record books.

Other events in which the Rebels will compete on Saturday’s final day of competition in Greensboro are the men’s triple jump (Morris Kersh), women’s triple jump (Marci Morman), men’s and women’s 4x100 meter relays and men’s 4x400 meter relay.
