OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss Track and Field Complex will be the site of Saturday’s Ole Miss Invitational, the Rebels’ first of two home meets for the 2012 outdoor season.

Admission is free for all home track and field events. The other home meet this year is the Mississippi Open, scheduled for Saturday, April 14.

Saturday’s meet is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. with the men’s hammer throw and women’s javelin and will conclude following the always-exciting women’s and men’s 4x400 meter relay slated for 7:30 and 7:40 p.m., respectively.

“We are excited to be at home, competing in front of family and friends,” Rebel head coach Joe Walker said. “We have a great facility and have always put up good marks here.”

Among the schools that will be represented in Oxford are SEC foes Alabama and Mississippi State, as well as the nearby Memphis Tigers of Conference USA. At least 10 more Division I universities from across the Southeast region and the country will be competing.

The Ole Miss men enter Saturday ranked No. 21 in the latest USTFCCCA poll, while in-state rival Mississippi State is ranked No. 14.

Last season’s Ole Miss Invitational saw the Rebels capture 13 titles in what Walker described as a “phenomenal day” by his team.

Three Rebels were recognized as SEC Athletes of the Week for their performances at last weekend’s SEC/Big Ten Challenge in Starkville, Miss.

Junior All-American Isiah Young was named the conference’s men’s runner of the week after claiming both the 100 and 200 meter sprint crowns in Starkville. Young set a meet record in the 100 with a time of 10.16, which leads the nation this year and currently ranks him second in the world so far this outdoor season.

Fellow junior All-American Ricky Robertson was honored as the league’s men’s field athlete of the week. The Hernando, Miss., native won the high jump at the SEC/Big Ten Challenge with a height of 7-4.5, which is the nation’s best mark this year and ties him for second-best in the world so far this outdoor season.

Senior Logan Waites was tapped the conference’s co-women’s runner of the week. The Hattiesburg, Miss., native broke a 23-year-old school record in the 3,000 meters at the SEC/Big Ten Challenge with a time of 9:45.54. Waites now holds or shares two school outdoor records and three indoor records.

Other Rebel men who rank highly in the NCAA in their events include Carson Blanks in the 400-meter hurdles (10th, 51.60), Malcolm Davis in the long jump (28th, 23-10) and Sam Kendricks in the pole vault (37th, 16-6.75). The 4x400 meter relay squad of Dante Oliver, Creighton Serrette, Young and Montez Griffin ranks 13th among NCAA schools (3:10.10), while the 4x100 relay team of Mike Granger, Young, Bradley Shields and Jarius Baker is 16th (40.25).

Rebel women who rank highly in the NCAA in their events include Neal Tisher in the pole vault (7th, 13-7), Kristin Bridges in the 400 meters (30th, 4.77), Deonna Walton in the long jump (31st, 19-4.25) and Pamela Lee in the high jump (38th, 5-7.75). The 4x400 meter relay squad of Lauren Hollingsworth, Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen, Monica Williams and Bridges ranks ninth among NCAA schools (3:39.60), while the 4x100 relay team of Taryn Hartfield, Hollingsworth, Jasmine Williams and Bridges is 19th (45.65).
