- The Rebels started the year 4-0 for the first time since 2007 and swept their first four matches for the first time since 1984.

Ole Miss Signee Shines At World XC Championships

Michaela Quinn, a member of the 2013 Ole Miss track & field signing class, turned in a great performance at the World Junior Cross Country Championships over the weekend.

Competing as a member of Team Australia, Quinn placed 25th in the girls' 6K race with an impressive time of 19:39. She crossed the line ahead of 61 other competitors, including four of the best American female high school distance runners.

As a point of reference, 19:39 would have been the best 6K time of an SEC cross country runner in 2012 and would have placed her fifth at the 2012 NCAA Championships.

What made Quinn's race even more impressive was that she and her teammates traveled from the heat of the summer in Australia to below-freezing temperatures in Bydgoszcz, Poland, for the meet.

Looks like the Rebels found a great addition for next year's team!
