Ole Miss Track & Field Ready to Roll at 2022 NCAA Outdoor Championships

Ole Miss men’s and women’s track & field will be represented by 11 student-athletes in nine different events on the highest stage of the collegiate track season at the 2022 NCAA Outdoor Championships, which returns to TrackTown USA at the University of Oregon’s Hayward Field from June 8-11.

The finest athletes in Division I will descend upon Eugene this week for the four-day meet, which is split into men’s competition (June 8 & 10) and women’s competition (June 9 & 11). To get to this point, student-athletes needed to qualify for their respective NCAA Regional Preliminary Round Championship (East or West), and then needed to finish within the top-12 of their events at the regional meet in order to punch their ticket to Oregon. Athletes competing in either the decathlon or heptathlon needed only to finish within the top-12 nationally by the end of the regular season.

Those 24 total athletes will not only be competing for team or individual national championships, but also to grasp one of the coveted top-eight scoring spots for First-Team All-American status. Places nine through 16 receive Second Team All-American honors, and the remaining eight competitors receive Honorable Mention All-American distinction.

This marks the second NCAA Championship meet at Oregon after Hayward Field received extensive renovationsimmediately following the 2018 national meet in preparation for what was originally supposed to be the 2021 World Athletics Championships (which were postponed to 2022 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic). Hayward Field has been the home of Oregon track & field since 1921, and has hosted numerous high-end competitions, including 17 NCAA Championship meets (1962, ’64, ’72, ’78, ’84, ’88, ’91, ’96, 2001, ’10, ’13, ’14, ’15, ’16, ’17, ’18, ’21), nine USA Track & Field Championships (1971, ’75, ’86, ’93, ’99, 2001, ’09, ’11, ’15), and seven U.S. Olympic Trials (1972, ’76, ’80, 2008, ’12, ’16, ’21).

Ole Miss will be looking to recapture some fabled Hayward Magic, adding to a strong Rebel history at the national meet. Across both the men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor seasons, 23 Rebels have won NCAA titles and 194 have earned First-Team All-American honors, while as a team Ole Miss has tallied 32 top-25 team finishes and scored 690.5 total national points. In seven years under head coach Connie Price-Smith, nine Rebels have won NCAA titles, 122 have earned First or Second-Team All-American honors, nine Rebel teams have finished in the top-25 and have scored 210 total NCAA points.

Competition will begin with the Rebel men on Wednesday and the women on Thursday, with action on Friday and Saturday heavily based on finals qualifying for the track events on the first two days. Ole Miss will be looking to advance men’s runners to Friday in the 800-meter and 1500-meter races, while the Rebel women’s potential for finals on Saturday rests on the 4×100-meter relay and 1500-meter.

The NCAA men’s sweep occurred six times from 1967 (Jim Ryun, Kansas) to 1977 (Wilson Waigwa, UTEP), but has only occurred seven times in the succeeding 45 years – most recently with Oregon’s Cole Hocker in 2021.
