JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Ole Miss athletes had a very successful first day of competition at the NCAA East Preliminary on Thursday at Hodges Stadium on the University of North Florida's campus.

Six of the seven Rebel men that ran preliminary races Thursday evening qualified for the quarterfinals later this weekend and will have a chance to move on to the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Oregon, June 11-14.

Freshman Sean Tobin topped all runners in the 1,500 meter preliminaries with his 3:44.84 that was the best time of the day. He qualifies for Saturday's quarterfinals along with fellow freshman Robert Domanic, who ran 3:50.74. The top 12 finishers on Saturday will advance to the nationals

Freshman Jalen Miller and senior Mike Granger advanced in the 100 meters. Miller ran 10.41 and Granger 10.55, both into a headwind. Miller's time was seventh-best out of the 48 competitors in Jacksonville. They will run in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Sophomores Dameon Morgan and Holland Sherrer both clocked personal bests in the 800 meters and qualified for Friday's quarterfinals. Morgan ran 1:48.90 and Sherrer 1:48.95, keeping them in the No. 6 and 7 spots in the outdoor school record books.

Senior Ricky Robertson and junior Malcolm Davis just missed qualifying for the national finals in the men's long jump. Robertson placed 14th with a jump of 24-7, and Davis was 17th with a leap of 24-4.5.

Robertson will have two more chances to qualify for Eugene when he competes in the triple jump on Friday and the high jump on Saturday.

Other key events for the Rebels on Friday include the men's 110-meter hurdles (Robert Semien), women's 100-meter hurdles (Taryn Hartfield), men's 200 meters (Kailo Moore) and men's hammer throw (Nathan Loe).
