JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Ole Miss junior Phillip Young qualified for the NCAA Championship finals in the men’s triple jump to lead the Rebels on Friday at the NCAA East Preliminary.
Young placed sixth at Hodges Stadium with a mark of 52-0.75. By finishing in the top 12, he earned a spot at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, which will take place June 11-14 in Eugene, Oregon.
A native of Key West, Florida, Young is the first Rebel to qualify for Eugene through the first two days of competition in Jacksonville. Saturday is set up to be a big day for Ole Miss, though, with such stars as Ricky Robertson (high jump), Sam Kendricks (pole vault), Sean Tobin (1500m) and Robert Domanic (1500m), as well as the men’s 4x100 and 4x400 relays.
Freshman Jalen Miller had a heartbreaking result in the 100 meter quarterfinals on Friday, missing a trip to Eugene by the narrowest of margins. He placed 13th with a time of 10.33 and was four one-thousandths of a second from the 12th and final qualifying spot (10.325 to 10.321). The Tunica, Mississippi, native will have another chance to advance with tomorrow’s 4x100 relay.
Junior Robert Semien advanced through the prelims of the 110-meter hurdles on Friday with a time of 13.94, just off his personal best of 13.91. He will run in Saturday’s quarterfinals for a chance to compete in Eugene.
Saturday’s competition is scheduled to get underway at 11 a.m. CT with the men’s pole vault. Running events will start at 5 p.m. CT with the 4x100 relays.
