FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Ricky Robertson claimed his fourth straight Southeastern Conference indoor high jump title to lead the way for Ole Miss on the second day of the SEC Indoor Championships
Robertson won his fourth straight title when he was the only man to clear the bar at 7-5 on Saturday at the Randal Tyson Track Center. He did not attempt any more jumps, since he competed in the long jump just minutes before the high jump began. He placed seventh in the long jump with an indoor personal-best 25-2.75, which ranks him sixth in school history.
The reigning SEC Indoor Field Athlete of the Year also plans to compete in the triple jump on Sunday.
Robertson became just the second athlete in SEC history to achieve four straight indoor high jump titles, joining Arkansas’ Kenny Evans, who did so from 1998-2001. The senior from Hernando, Miss., now boasts five SEC high jump titles between indoor and outdoor competition.
