(Release) Ole Miss’s men’s and women’s track and field held a clinic in one of the country’s most competitive competitions this week, winning six events and recording several spectacular performances on day one of the Joe Walker invitation Friday. Bad weather in the Oxford area on Friday night forced the men’s 1,500-meter invitational, the women’s 800-meter invitational and the two invitational editions of the 5-mile races to be postponed until Saturday.

The hype around Friday centered around a dynamite distance range in the evening, but the Rebel field athletes did not disappoint throughout the day, demonstratively winning five of those six events.

Ole Miss received two more stunning outings from newcomers Jasmine Mitchell and Jalani Davis in the women’s hammer and shot put, respectively. Mitchell was stunned by a 23ft, 8in, career best draw monster of 66.37m (217-09) to win by over 12ft. This is only the third time Mitchell throws the hammer as a rebel, and she already ranks second all-time behind the 2018 national title from NCAA Champion Janeah Stewart of 72.92m (239-03 ). Additionally, Mitchell ranks eighth in the NCAA at the moment.

Davis had another stellar week in the shot put, winning by over three feet at a two foot PR of 16.49m (54-01.25). She already ranks fourth all-time at Ole Miss as the fourth member of the 54-foot club, and right now she sits 23rd in the NCAA.

The newcomers also dominated the women’s pole vault. Lyndsey Reed and Samara McConnell provided another punch to the Rebels, with Reed becoming just the second 14-foot club member in Ole Miss history. Reed won in the play-off against teammate McConnell, clearing 4.28m (14 to 00.50) to join All-American Lindsey Murray above 14 feet in school history. McConnell settled for second place at a still solid outside PR of 4.18m (13-08.50), the third best in school history. The duo currently ranks No.7 and No.17 in the NCAA, respectively.

Ole Miss swept the men’s and women’s long jump, with All-American Allen Gordon winning on a new season best 7.71m / 25-03.25 (0.5), and senior Kieshonna Brooks coming out hot with a quasi-PR of 6.16 m / 20-02.50 (1.0).

The Rebels also excelled in the ever-popular mini-carnival of distance on Friday night. Ole Miss newcomer Sintayehu Vissa broke the school’s record in the women’s 1,500 meters on her first career attempt, finishing fifth at 4: 16.70 in a bonkers invitational section that featured nine under- 4: 20 times and the three best times in the NCAA this season. Vissa’s new record broke Shelby Brown’s 2017 record of 4: 19.09, and currently places her No. 11 in the NCAA.

Anna Elkin at 4: 22.02 (6th all-time) and Loral Winn at 4: 22.55 (7th all-time) were the other rebel women who achieved highlights in the 1,500-meter invitational.

Baylor Franklin (fourth, 1: 48.27) and Cade Bethmann (eighth, 1: 48.76) both clocked the NCAA top 15 in the men’s invitational 800 meters, a race that featured the best time in NCAA vs. Finley McLear of Miami, Ohio (1: 46.51). For Franklin, it fits as an overall PR and the # 11 time in school history. The duo currently ranks No.11 and No.14 in the NCAA, respectively.

All-American sprinter Brandee Presley took to the spotlight early on the track, taking advantage of a rare moment of calm in the wind to achieve a legal 200m wind PR at 23.40 (1.3) – the sixth best time in school history and the 21st time in the NCAA this season. Fellow All-American Elijah Dryer was third in the men’s 200, tying his PR at 21.00 (0.4).

Competition is scheduled to resume at the Ole Miss Track and Field Complex at 10 a.m. CT with the resumption of the men’s decathlon.
