EUGENE, Ore. – Isiah Young made some school history on Thursday as he advanced through the 200-meter semifinals at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships at historic Hayward Field on the University of Oregon campus.

The Ole Miss senior advanced to the 200-meter final one day after he qualified for the 100-meter final, becoming the first athlete in program history to make the NCAA finals in both short sprints. Young cruised to second place in his heat with a speedy time of 20.12, which is four-hundredths of a second faster than the school record he set last year at the U.S. Olympic Trials when he qualified for the London Olympics. His 20.12 was the fourth-fastest time out of the eight men that qualified for Saturday’s final, set to be run at 4:50 p.m. CT (ESPNU).

Young earned fourth place in the 200 at last year’s outdoor championships. The only other Rebel to have ever made the 200 final was Tony Dees in 1983, where he finished eighth.

The two-day women’s heptathlon competition got underway Thursday, and Ole Miss junior Mary Ashton Nall finished the day in 21st place with 3,201 points through four events. She started with a bang in the 100-meter hurdles, clocking a huge personal best of 13.77 that moved her up to sixth place in the Rebel record books. She capped the day with another personal best, clocking a 24.90 in the 200 meters.

Friday’s action will include these same two Rebels. Nall will compete in the final three events of the heptathlon, beginning at 2:30 p.m. CT, while Young will go for a national title in the 100 meters at 7:10 p.m. CT, televised live on ESPNU.
