AUSTIN, Texas – Sprints and hurdle races were on display for the LSU track & field teams on Saturday at the 91st Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays Built by The Home Depot. The LSU women’s 4x100-meter relay team, freshman Damion Thomas and senior Aleia Hobbs picked up victories on the final day of competition.

The Lady Tigers squad of Mikiah Brisco, Kortnei Johnson, Cassondra Hall and Hobbs ran a time of 42.66 seconds, the second-fastest time in the world this season behind their 42.65 from last week’s competition in Tempe, Arizona.

Thomas won the men’s 110 hurdles with a wind-aided, collegiate best 13.43.
