NEW ORLEANS – Ole Miss women’s track & field came in at No. 14 in the Week Three USTFCCCA Indoor Rating Index released on Monday.
 
Overall, this is the 53rd ranking for the Rebel women since their first appearance in 2008. Of the 102 combined indoor rankings in Ole Miss history, ninth-year head coach Connie Price-Smith owns 69 total appearances (45 women, 24 men).
 
The Ole Miss women are still heavily paced by its duo near the top of the weight throw leaderboard in All-American seniors Jasmine Mitchell (No. 1, 24.16m/79-03.25, 23.72 points) and Jalani Davis (No. 3, 24.06m/78-11.25, 19.53 points), with Davis adding an extra 15.88 points following a big showing in the shot put at Arkansas’ Razorback Invitational. Davis ranks fourth nationally and leads the SEC at 18.00m/59-00.75, making her the lone thrower worldwide this season at 24 meters in the weight and 18 meters in the shot put.
 
Combined with 3.72 points from freshman Mensi Stiff (No. 13, 17.17m/56-4) in the shot put, the Rebel women’s throwers currently account for 62.4 of Ole Miss’ 68.66 total points in the Week Three index.
 
All-American senior sprinter McKenzie Long is contributing 6.27 points of her own after solid debuts in her two marquee indoor events. Long currently ranks 11th nationally in the 200-meter at 23.10, worth 5.72 points, as well as 23rd in the 60-meter at 7.28 for 0.55 points.
 
The USTFCCCA’s National Rating Index is a computer rating system that uses an algorithm that emphasizes individual performances, assigning a point value to each individual mark that contributes to a team total to assess its national ranking.
 
Ole Miss returns to action this weekend after a week off, splitting three ways for Arkansas’ Tyson Invitational, Vanderbilt’s Music City Challenge and Boston University’s David Hemery Valentine Invite – all set for Feb. 9-10.
