BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – A total of 16 Ole Miss athletes in 13 different events qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships by placing in the top 12 among participants during the three-day East Preliminary Round at the E.C. Billy Hayes Track on the campus of Indiana University.

Making it through to the June 8-11 NCAA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa were Mike Granger in the men’s 100 meters, Jonathan Juin in the 200, Lee Ellis Moore and Carson Blanks in the men’s 400 meter hurdles, Ricky Robertson in the men’s high jump, Caleb Lee in the men’s long jump, Morris Kersh in the men’s triple jump, Sofie Persson in the women’s 400 meter hurdles, Marci Morman in the women’s triple jump, Neal Tisher in the women’s pole vault, Juliana Smith in the women’s hammer throw and both the women’s 4x100 and 4x400 meter relay teams.

Saturday’s final day of competition in Bloomington saw the Rebels add three more qualifiers to their previous total of 10 from the first two days.

Senior Jonathan Juin advanced in the 200 meters with a fifth-place time of 21.14 after nearly qualifying in the 100 meters on Friday.

Both women’s relay squads advanced to Des Moines. The 4x100 team of Kristin Bridges, Lauren Hollingsworth, Jasmine Williams and LaJada Baldwin ran a season-best time of 44.79 to finish 12th. It ranks the squad fifth-best in school history in the event. The 4x400 team of Hollingsworth, Bridges, Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen and Persson clocked a 3:36.04 to place 10th.

The nine Rebel women to advance to the national championships will mark a new school record, while the seven men qualifiers tie for second-most in school history.
