GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Ole Miss junior Haley Cutright turned in one of the best performances in school history to lead the Rebels at the Southeastern Conference Cross Country Championships, hosted by the University of Florida on Friday.

Cutright led the team at the 12-minute mark and never looked back. The Roanoke, Va., native finished 11th overall to tie for the second-best finish by an Ole Miss woman in program history. By placing between eighth and 14th, she earned All-SEC second team honors, becoming the third Rebel female ever to be named All-SEC in cross country. One of four Rebel women ever to run a 6K under 21 minutes, she did it for the second straight meet with her time of 20:46.64.

"Haley Cutright had a really good race," said second-year head coach Brian O'Neal.  "She has developed, and it's been great to see where she started and how far she has come this season to where she is now. One of her goals was to be All-SEC and she put that number up today.  I am extremely proud of her."

Freshman Sophie Linn finished second on the team and 24th overall with a time of 21:18.87.  The Australian rookie received SEC All-Freshman honors.

As a team, the Ole Miss women placed ninth with 190 points and had an average time of 21:37.52 in the 6K. The Lady Rebels finished ahead of Mississippi State, Georgia, South Carolina, Auburn, and LSU.

Senior Max Holman, who raced his final SEC Championship in a Rebel uniform, led the charge for the men, placing 38th overall and had a personal-best time in the 8K of 25:06.53. He and sophomore Ian Carter finished neck-and-neck at the finish line. Carter crossed the line 39th overall with a time of 25:06.67. Trevor Gilley earned SEC All-Freshman honors with a 25:20.96 time and 45th-place overall finish.

The men finished 10th overall with an average time of 25:56.19 in the 8K ahead of Alabama, LSU and Vanderbilt.

"Each weekend our team has gotten better as the week has gone along," O'Neal said. "I think this week you just have to tip your hat to the other teams. They came in here and just out-fought us. It definitely did not show that we had any lack of effort."
