DES MOINES, Iowa
– Five-time Rebel All-American and Olympian Isiah Young took fourth in a fast final in the men’s 100-meter dash to highlight Day Two of the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Drake Stadium on Friday.


Young ran 10.00 for fourth, falling six thousandths of a second short of third place and a bronze medal to Georgia’s Kendall Williams, who ran 9.992 to Young’s 9.998. Noah Lyles, the 20-year old professional phenom, won at a world-leading, wind-legal time of 9.88. For comparison, world-record holder Usain Bolt had only run 10.03 at age 20 (note via David Woods of the Indianapolis Star).


Young, who owns three USA medals throughout his accomplished career, is far from done, as he will head back to the track tomorrow for the first round of the men’s 200-meter dash at 1:10 p.m. CT. Young was an IAAF World finalist in the 200-meter just last season, where he finished eighth overall.


Three-time Rebel All-American steeplechaser MJ Erb also competed on Day Two, punching his ticket to the final in the men’s 3000-meter steeplechase following a season-best performance in Heat One today. Erb clocked a four-second season-best at 8:28.62 to finish fourth in his heat for an auto-qualifier spot to Sunday’s final. His time today falls just two seconds shy of his career-best 8:26.75 from last year’s USA Championships in Sacramento.


Senior and NCAA qualifier Jolie Carbo concluded her incredible Ole Miss career on Day Two, finishing 12th in the semifinals of the women’s 400-meter dash at 53.12. Carbo recently earned Second-Team All-American honors at the NCAA Outdoor Championships at Hayward Field in the 4x100-meter relay, and she leaves Ole Miss as the fifth-fastest 400-meter runner outdoors at her career-best 52.78 from this season’s NCAA East Regional.


Young opens a busy day of Rebel competition on Saturday in the 200-meter at 1:10 p.m. CT. Olympic bronze medalist Sam Kendricks looks to become the first to win five straight USA Outdoor pole vault titles since World War II at 1:30 p.m., NCAA champion Janeah Stewart and a handful of her volunteer coach training partners hit the ring for what’s sure to be an intense women’s hammer final at 2:20 p.m., and All-Americans Robert Domanic and Craig Engels look to make a move in the men’s 1500-meter final at 4:40 p.m.
