COLUMBIA, Mo. – Ole Miss received strong outings from its multi-eventers on Friday to score the Rebels’ first points of the Southeastern Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

Junior Mary Ashton Nall racked up a career-high 5,397 points in the women’s heptathlon to earn fourth place, her highest career SEC finish. Highlighted by a personal-best long jump (18-6.5), she earned five team points for the Ole Miss women. A native of Auburn, Ala., her mark keeps her third-best in school history in the heptathlon.

Junior Fabia McDonald, the SEC outdoor runner-up in the heptathlon last year, was unable to finish on Thursday night after injuring her ankle.

Peyton Moss scored the Rebel men’s first point of the weekend with an eighth-place result in the decathlon. The freshman from Germantown, Tenn., compiled a personal-best point total of 6,543 to move into fifth place in school history.

Defending SEC outdoor 200-meter champion Isiah Young had no problem qualifying for Sunday’s 200-meter final during Friday’s prelims. He cruised to victory in his heat with a time of 20.71, the second-fastest time of the prelims. The 2012 London Olympian also plans to run the 100-meter prelims on Saturday and is a candidate to compete in both relays on Sunday.

Junior Dante Oliver finished 12th in the men’s 400-meter hurdles (personal-best 53.47) and senior Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen was 13th in the women’s 400-meter hurdles (1:01.14), but they did not qualify for the finals.

Competition continues Saturday with a jam-packed lineup of events starting at 1 p.m. Events to watch for Ole Miss fans include the men’s javelin (Benjamin Lapane), women’s long jump (Allegra Wells, Shari Russell, Deonna Walton), men’s 110-meter prelim (Robert Semien), women’s 100-meter prelim (Taryn Hartfield), men’s 100-meter prelim (Isiah Young), women’s 100-meter prelim (Asia Cooper) and women’s steeplechase (Haley Cutright, Anne Threlkeld, Kelsey Breathitt).
