Five Rebel Freshmen Set for USATF U20 Outdoor Championships - Ole Miss Athletics

– Five members of the impressive Ole Miss track & field freshman class will represent the Rebels at the USA Track & Field U20 Outdoor Championships this weekend (June 21-23) at the Ansin Sports Complex. The junior championships feature athletes from 14-20 years old, with berths to the Pan American U20 Championships later this summer on the line. The top two finishers in each event with the qualifying standard earn a trip to Costa Rica as a member of Team USA. Four Rebels have competed in the Pan American U20 Championships: James Shelton, who won a gold medal on Team USA's 4x100-meter relay while also winning a bronze in the 100-meter dash in 1999; Kendrick Triggs in the 200-meter dash in 2001; and Carmia Carroll in the high jump in 2005. Competition begins for the Rebels with freshman in the men's hammer, which is slated for 4 p.m. CT on Friday.
