The Tigers didn’t have to go far to have a solid weekend, as the inaugural SEC Relays were held in Baton Rouge at LSU’s Bernie Moore Track Stadium. Aleia Hobbs ran the 2nd-fastest 100 meter time in outdoor collegiate history at 10.85. Hobbs also teamed up with 3 others to post the top 4×100 relay time in the country this season at 42.12, tying a collegiate outdoor record in the process. LSU comes in at 3rd for the 2nd time this season, having also ranked there during the 1st week of the regular season.

The Aggies remained atop the pack after a strong showing at the SEC Relays. Texas A&M’s 4×400 relay squad ran a 3:27.72 for the 5th-best time in the country on the season, while the 4×100 relay squad’s time of 43.01 is good for 6th this year. Additionally, Serena Brown posted a 56.84m (186-6) in the discus throw for the 6th-furthest mark on the descending order list.

Oregon’s torrid outdoor season continued at the Penn Relays, where the Ducks’ relay squads were on fire. A quartet of women ran the 5th-fasest time in collegiate outdoor history with a time of 3:24.72 that also stands as the top time in the event on the season, while another group of Ducks ran the 3rd-best 4×100 relay time of 42.35 this season.

Despite dropping in the rankings, both Arkansas’ Daina Harper ran the 3rd-best time in the 400 meters on the season at 51.38 during the SEC Relays.
