OXFORD, Miss. - Members of the Ole Miss men's and women's track and field teams will travel to Austin, Texas, to participate in the 72nd annual Texas Relays April 1-3. The University of Texas is hosting the meet. After a solid showing at the Alabama Relays last weekend, Ole Miss head coach Joe Walker is looking for continued improvement by his squads at the Texas Relays.

"I was pleased with our effort last weekend at Alabama, as several athletes were able to qualify for the NCAA Championships," said Walker. "However, we need to continue to strive to get better, and this weekend's Texas Relays offers us that opportunity. We will be competing against some of the top athletes in the nation this weekend, and I believe that we can only get better by competing against the best."

The Ole Miss squads begin competition on Thursday afternoon with Savante Stringfellow participating in the long jump. Wayne Woolery and Brandy Mack will represent Ole Miss in the men's and women's 400-meter hurdles, respectively, while Bernie Kuria will run in the men's 10,000 meters.

On Friday, Alonzo Banks will run in the 400 meters, while Kyle Wallace will compete in the pole vault. The men's mile relay team and the Lady Rebel sprint medley relay will also run on Friday.

Last weekend at the Alabama Relays, the Lady Rebel team set three school records and had four individuals provisionally qualify for the NCAA Championships. Teneeshia Jones set a school record in the 100 meters in a time of 11.47, breaking her own mark of 11.57 that she had set a week earlier. The Lady Rebel 400-meter and 3200-meter relay teams also set school records in their respective events. The 400-meter team of Jones, Dawn Dickerson, Wanikka Vance and Candice Cattron provisionally qualified for the NCAAs with a school-record time of 45.10 seconds.

On the men's side, the Rebel 1600-meter relay team of Woolery, Stringfellow, Banks and Jimmy Love qualified provisionally for the NCAAs at last weekend's Alabama Relays. The team placed second in the 1600-meter relay in a time of 3:05.37.
