OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss freshman Taryn Hartfield was among the best high school and college freshman standouts to compete this past weekend at the 2012 USA Junior Outdoor Track and Field Championships, held at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington.
On Saturday, Hartfield raced to a seventh-place finish in the 100-meter hurdle finals. Against a stiff wind, the Hattiesburg, Miss., native clocked a 14.11. In the prelims held earlier that day, she ran a 13.74 and finished seventh among qualifiers.
It caps a successful rookie campaign for Hartfield, who was named to the SEC All-Freshman team for the indoor 60-meter hurdles and broke into the top three of the school record books in both the indoor 60-meter hurdles and outdoor 100-meter hurdles.
Hartfield is the fifth Rebel to compete at the USA Junior Championships over the last three years, joining Mike Granger, Benjamin Lapane, Mary Ashton Nall and Fabia McDonald. In 2010, Granger won the 100 meters at the USA Juniors and went on to take fourth in the 100 at the World Juniors and win gold at the World Juniors with the U.S. 4x100 meter relay team.
Next up for current members of the Ole Miss track and field team will be the U.S. Olympic Trials, held June 21-July 1 in Eugene, Ore. The top performers at the trials will earn spots on Team USA for the 2012 London Olympics.
