Allen, Kendricks honored

Two Ole Miss athletes have been honored as SEC players of the week.

Will Allen, a senior catcher from Gainesville, Fla., earned the baseball award after a 6-for-11 weekend at Stetson
that included a double, two home runs and 11 RBIs.
Allen homered and drove in five runs on Sunday.

Track and field pole vaulter Sam Kendricks, a sophomore from Oxford, was named the athlete of the week after vaulting 18-8.25 breaking his own school record with a jump that now ranks ninth in NCAA history at the Don Kirby Elite Invitational in Albuquerque.

Kendricks’ jump ranks No. 1 in the NCAA, No. 1 in America and No. 13 in the world.
