Reese, Rebels Excel At LSU Alumni Gold



BATON ROUGE, La. Sophomore All-American Britney Reese continued her domination in the long jump as she won her fourth title in four outdoor chances with a mark of 21-09.00. It was a career best mark for SEC Indoor long jump champion and tied Tisha Parker’s school record set in 2000. It is also the second best mark in the nation this season behind Rhonda Watkins, of UCLA.


“Britney had a great jump,” said Ole Miss head coach Joe Walker. “We had great weather and great competition, and she rose to the occasion. I think she can still get better.”


Reese also recorded a NCAA regional qualifying mark with a jump of 5-08.75 to finish fourth in the high jump. The mark tied her season best. Junior Carmia Carroll also posted a mark of 5-08.75 to finish third in the high jump. The mark was a season best for Carroll and just off her career-best mark of 5-9.25. Carroll also recorded a NCAA regional qualifying mark of 40-06.25 in the triple jump.


“Carmia also had an outstanding meet,” said Walker. “She earned a NCAA regional qualifying marks in the high jump and triple jump. That is big for us as a team.”


All-American John Yarbrough won the 110-meter hurdles in a season-best time of 13.69. Yarbrough’s time is a NCAA qualifying mark and the third fastest in the nation this season.


“John really ran a great race,” said Walker. “He had some great competition and was able to win. That’s what you what to see.”


Junior Rickie Bratton won the 200 meters in a time of 20.83. It was a career-best time for Bratton and a NCAA regional qualifying time. Bratton had previously qualified in the 200 meters.


Sophomore Derek McGuire turned in a season-best toss of 57-04.25 to finish second in the men’s shot put. It was a NCAA regional qualifying mark for McGuire, who had previously qualified.


Kenyata Coleman, Kadeshia Fortune, Kim Mulkey and Cachet Murray won the women’s 4x100-meter relay in a season best time of 44.62. The quartet had previously recorded a NCAA regional qualifying mark.


Coleman also posted another NCAA regional qualifying mark in the 400 meters with a career-best time of 52.83. The time is the second fastest in school history behind Angelia Clay’s mark of 52.49 in 1996.


Freshman Davina Orieukwu finished third in the women’s shot put with a mark of 45-07.75. Orieukwu’s mark is second all-time in school history behind Monique McClure mark of 46-03.25 set in 2001.
