OXFORD, Miss. - The 2013-14 Ole Miss track & field season gets underway this Friday in Birmingham, Ala., where the Rebels will compete in the BSC Panther Indoor Icebreaker, hosted by Birmingham Southern College.
Ole Miss returns several All-Americans and an NCAA Champion from last year's squad that included a No. 8 final national men's outdoor ranking, the best in school history.
"I know our athletes have been looking forward to getting the indoor season started," said second-year head coach Brian O'Neal. "This meet will give us a gauge of how our fall conditioning has gone. It will also give us a chance to see some of our newcomers compete for the first time in a competitive environment."
Returning men's All-Americans include 2013 NCAA pole vault champion Sam Kendricks, six-time SEC champion high jumper Ricky Robertson and four-time All-American sprinter Mike Granger. Robertson has exhausted his indoor eligibility and will only compete in the outdoor season beginning in March.
Both the Rebel men and women will be bolstered by one of the largest signing classes in school history, and several of those newcomers will be in action in the season opener in Birmingham.
Running events at the Birmingham CrossPlex are slated to begin at 1 p.m. on Friday with the 60-meter prelims and run through 8:30 p.m. with the 4x400-meter relays. Field events begin at 8 a.m. with the weight throw and run through 5:30 p.m. with the high jump.
