NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Ole Miss senior Katie Breathitt claimed first place individually and helped the Rebel women’s cross country team finish runner-up at the Commodore Classic on Saturday.

Katie Breathitt won the 6K race with a time of 21:03.23, while fellow seniors Anne Threlkeld and Kelsey Breathitt also placed in the top 15 out of 216 runners. Threlkeld came in 13th with a time of 21:44.98, while Kelsey Breathitt, Katie’s twin sister, finished 14th with a time of 21:45.11.

“Everyone has worked very hard over the summer and since day one of training,” Katie Breathitt said. “This meet proved that all of our hard work paid off. I’m really proud of how everyone competed and I know we will only continue to improve.”

Juniors Amy McCrory and Kayleigh Skinner also finished strong for the Ole Miss women, both placing in the top 30. Haley Cutright rounded out the scoring for the Rebels.

“I’m proud of our effort on the women’s side,” head coach Brian O’Neal said. “I thought our one-through-three runners ran really well. It was a special day for Katie to come away with a victory. For us to be a championship-caliber team, we have to have our four-through-six runners to run the way they’re capable of. They gave a great effort, but there’s more there.”

The Ole Miss women beat six SEC rivals on Saturday in Mississippi State, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, LSU and Tennessee. Host team Vanderbilt took the women’s team crown.

The Ole Miss men turned in a seventh-place effort, led by senior Riley Young, who finished 19th with a time of 25:13.59 on the 8K course.

Freshman Seumas O’Reilly and junior Max Holman finished in the top 40 with times of 25:40.97 and 25:45.98, respectively. Junior Loren Newsom finished with a time of 26:08.74 and placed 61st overall.

Freshman Ian Carter, junior Al Lowe and sophomore Alex Nichols rounded out the scoring for the Rebels.

“Our one-through-three runners competed well,” O’Neal said. “The four-through-six runners have battled some injuries and illnesses, but I’m proud of their effort. We’ll get back to campus, work on getting healthy and continue to show marked improvement from week two to week three.”

The Rebel men outdistanced SEC foe Alabama and LSU in Saturday’s meet, while Eastern Kentucky took the team title.

Next up for Ole Miss is the Greater Louisville Classic on Sept. 29 in Louisville, Ky.
