LSU senior sprinter Aleia Hobbs retained her spot on The Bowerman Watch List after a strong performance in the Southeastern Conference track and field championships this weekend.

Hobbs made the 10-woman list for a fourth consecutive time when the post-conference championships version was announced Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

A New Orleans native, Hobbs put her name in the SEC meet record books with a time of 10.93 seconds in the 100 meters prelims on Saturday night. She came back less than 24 hours later to lower the mark to 10.92 to take the title for the second year in a row.

She successfully defended her 100 meters title an hour after anchoring LSU’s 4x100-meter relay to a collegiate record time of 42.05 seconds. She was joined on the relay by Mikiah Brisco, Kortnei Johnson and Rachel Misher.

With her times of 10.92 and 10.93 seconds this weekend, Hobbs, who recorded a personal-best of 10.85 seconds last season, now owns three of the five fastest 100 wind-legal times in collegiate history.
