Ole Miss freshman Jalen Miller made it through the semifinals and into the final of the men’s 60 meter dash at the NCAA Indoor Championships Friday night at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
Miller, an 18-year-old rookie from Tunica, Miss., posted the eighth-fastest time of the semifinals at 6.64 to qualify for Saturday’s national championship final. He finished third in his heat behind co-leader Diondre Batson of Alabama (6.54) and Florida State’s Dentarius Locke (6.56).
Miller is the first Ole Miss man to make the 60 meter championship final since Isiah Young in 2012. He’s the first Rebel men’s freshman to make the final since Mike Granger in 2010. Asia Cooper accomplished the feat last year on the women’s side.
The final of the 60 will take place at 8 p.m. CT on Saturday.
The other Rebel in Albuquerque is reigning NCAA outdoor and SEC indoor pole vault champion Sam Kendricks. The men’s pole vault competition begins at 6:30 p.m. CT Saturday. Kendricks will jump 15th of 16 vaulters.
