JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Four Ole Miss athletes qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships with top-12 performances at the NCAA East Preliminary round on Friday.

The No. 11 nationally ranked Ole Miss men’s team had strong showings by some of its stars on Friday at Hodges Stadium on the campus of the University of North Florida.

Isiah Young placed 11th in the 100 meters (10.29), Carson Blanks was fifth in the 400-meter hurdles (50.41) and Ricky Robertson turned in a third-place effort in the triple jump (52-4), one of his two events this weekend.

On the women’s side, Kristin Bridges will make her first career NCAA Championships appearance in an individual event after placing 10th in the 400 meters with a personal-best 52.65, which ranks her fourth in school history.

Young advanced to Saturday’s quarterfinals in the men’s 200 meters by clocking the second-fastest time of the day at 20.45. Jasmine Williams qualified for the women’s 200 meter quarterfinals, as well.

Other Rebels who will compete on Saturday for a spot at the June 6-9 NCAA Championships in Des Moines include Sam Kendricks in the men’s pole vault, Robertson in the men’s high jump, Aria Gaines and Marci Morman in the women’s triple jump and both the men’s and women’s 4x100 and 4x400 meter relay squads.

Other Friday highlights included Katie Breathitt again breaking her own school record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 10:26.39 and Taryn Hartfield moving up to third-best in school history with a 100-meter hurdle time of 13.58.
