2012-13 Ole Miss Track & Field Schedule

OXFORD, Miss. - Featuring some of the top athletic competitions in the nation, the 2012-13 Ole Miss track & field schedule will be a challenging one under first-year head coach Brian O'Neal.

The Rebels will face the challenge head-on with a team that includes All-Americans, SEC Champions and an Olympian returning to the fold.

"We have a very attractive schedule that allows us to compete against the best teams in the NCAA," said O'Neal, who is in his first season as head coach after highly successful assistant coaching tenures at Ole Miss and Florida. "We've had a great fall with offseason conditioning and the athletes are looking forward to putting on an Ole Miss jersey representing the Red and Blue while competing at a high level."

The indoor season gets underway Dec. 1 with the Panther Indoor Icebreaker in Birmingham, Ala. Ole Miss will compete two more times at the Birmingham CrossPlex in January before February meets in Blacksburg, Va., Albuquerque and Seattle.

The 2013 SEC Indoor Championships will be held Feb. 22-24 in Fayetteville, Ark., which will also serve host to the NCAA Indoor Championships March 8-9.

The outdoor season features a pair of home meets that will give local fans a chance to see the nationally recognized Rebels in their own backyard. The Ole Miss Invitational will be held Saturday, April 13, followed by the Mississippi Open the next weekend, April 20. Both meets at the Ole Miss Track & Field Complex are free to the public.

"We are looking forward to competing at home on back-to-back weekends in April," O'Neal said. "It gives our fans and the casual observer of the sport an opportunity to come out and watch the team featuring Olympian Isiah Young, who will be competing at home for the final time representing the Rebs."

The outdoor schedule also includes some big-time national meets, highlighted by the Texas Relays (March 30), Pepsi Florida Relays (April 5-6) and Drake Relays (April 25-27).

Ole Miss will participate in the 2013 SEC Outdoor Championships May 9-12, hosted by conference newcomer Missouri in Columbia, Mo.

The 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships will get underway with the East Preliminary in Greensboro, N.C. (May 24-25). Those athletes that qualify will advance to Track Town USA for the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore. (June 5-8).
