BATON ROUGE, La. – The LSU track and field program wrapped up their senior day and final regular-season meet of the year on Saturday. The Bernie Moore track stadium saw the Tigers take four first-place finishes.
The LSU 4×100-meter relay team consisting of Brandon Hicklin, Dorian Camel, Da’Marcus Fleming, and Godson Oghenebrume continues to dominate their competition, taking first on Saturday with another nation-leading time of 38.26 seconds. Their time shaves .10 seconds off of their nation-lead from last week and is their fifth time resetting their lead this season. The time of 38.26 seconds also ranks fourth in the world, sixth on the all-time collegiate list, and is the Bernie Moore stadium record.
Not long after, Oghenebrume went on to clear the men’s 100-meter field with a wind-aided time of 10.01 seconds. Behind Godson in second was his teammate Fleming with a time of 10.10w seconds.
Hicklin was also enjoying his day in the 100 meter with a personal-best time of 10.15 seconds. Prior to running the 100 he jumped out to an early lead in the long jump invitational with a distance of 7.89 meters on his first leap. After taking the lead into the finals for long jump, Hicklin passed on the final three jumps to run his eventual PR in the 100.
Senior John Meyer took first in shot put with a season-best toss of 20.42 meters, which he landed on his second attempt of the afternoon. Meyer was one of two athletes to surpass 20 meters in the rain. His throw improves his hold of his number three rank in the nation.
Celebrating her second to last home meet with the Tigers, Alia Armstrong raced out to a season-best time of 12.56 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles. Her previous best this season was 12.57 seconds, which she clocked at the Texas Relays last month. She now sits at third in the nation after taking second place on Saturday.
