CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Saturday was another big day for LSU's 4x100-meter relay teams in the University of Miami-hosted Hurricane Collegiate Invitational.
For the second week in a row, the 10th-ranked Tigers and fifth-ranked Lady Tigers swept the sprint relays with the men winning in 39.65 seconds after the women won in 42.53 — the fourth-fastest time in the world this spring.
Mikiah Brisco, Kortnei Johnson, Rachel Misher and Aleia Hobbs was just off its winning time of 42.50 last week in the Battle on the Bayou, which was the fastest in the world this spring until a team from England posted a 42.46 on Saturday.
Dennis Shaver's top men's team of Kary Vincent, Renard Howell, Correion Mosby and Jaron Flournoy won Saturday by more than a second after the Tigers prevailed last week with a 39.87 without Vincent and Flournoy.
LSU's speed was also display in the 100 and 200 meters.
Cassondra Hall and Misher raced to a 1-2 finish in the women's 100 with personal-record times of 11.21 seconds each, while Howell and Mosby matched them with identical times of 10.34 — which were also PRs.
It was more of the same in the 200 as LSU took the top three spots in the women's race with Johnson (22.61), Brisco (22.83) and Hobbs (22.93) all setting PRs.
On the men's side, Akanni Hislop and Jahnoy Thompson went 1-2 with PRs of 20.74 and 20.77.
The Lady Tigers' Tonea Marshall also put down a PR in taking second in the women's 100 hurdles with a 13.09.
Damion Thomas claimed the 110 hurdles title in 13.78 seconds, Hollie Parker won the women's 1,500 (4 minutes, 24.92 seconds) and Jack Wilkes took the 800 (1:50.85).
