FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Lady Rebel junior jumper Brittney Reese set a new school record in the indoor long jump with a mark of 22-04.25 Friday afternoon to highlight Ole Miss’ competition in day one of the Tyson Invitational hosted by the University of Arkansas.  

 

Reese surpasses the previous indoor long jump school record of 21-09.50 which she set a year ago at the SEC Indoor Championships.  Her current long jump mark she set Friday is the best in the NCAA this season, the best mark in the United States for any athlete and the ninth best mark in the world. 

 

In addition to Reese’s school record and individual championship, sophomore Davina Orieukwu turned in a ninth place showing in the weight throw with a distance of 56-10.75.  Orieukwu went on to set a new indoor school record in the shot put Saturday with a distance of 48-10.25, surpassing her previous mark of 43-6.0 she set a season ago. 

 

The men’s side featured three Rebels who finished in the top 10, highlighted by junior Kyle Lewis’ second place finish in the 5000 meters with a personal best time of 14:41.78.  Fellow junior Karl Kosman recorded a seventh place finish in the pole vault with a mark of 14-11.00.  Wale Odetunde rounded out the Rebel trio in the top 10 with his ninth place finish in the long jump championship with a mark of 24-04.25. 

 

Reese continued her strong showing during the second day of the invitational as she recorded a second place finish in the high jump championship with a mark of 5-11.50. 

 

Day two also saw the Lady Rebels record two NCAA provisional marks starting with senior Kasey McDaniel’s qualifying mark of 8.43 in the 60 meter hurdles en route to a 15th place finish.  The Lady Rebels also posted an NCAA provisional mark in the 4x400 meter relay with a new indoor school record time of 3:38.19 to finish in second place. 

 

On the men’s side, sophomore Edin Pasalic turned in a seventh place showing in the 800 meters championships with a time of 1:54.44.  Lewis recorded a new personal best time, his second personal best mark of the weekend, in the 3000 meters with a mark of 8:22.72 en route to a third place finish in the event.  Junior James Maloney also collected a top 10 finish as he earned an eighth place showing in the weight throw with a distance of 61-05.75. 

 

Ole Miss returns to action Feb. 29-Mar. 2 when the Rebels take part in the SEC Indoor Championships from Fayetteville, Ark., hosted by the University of Arkansas
