Kim Francis won the 60m hurdles with a time of 8.44, marking the second straight year she has won the hurdles race. It marks the fourth consecutive year a Techster has won the gold medal in the 60m hurdles.

Trey Hadnot won the 400m with a personal best time of 47.84. Hadnot’s gold medal marks the third straight year Louisiana Tech has claimed gold in the event.

Dennis Richardson won the 60m dash as he tied his personal best time of 6.79. He is the first Bulldog since Michael Coleman in 2009 to win the event.

Chelsea Hayes win in the 60m dash (7.31) marked the eighth consecutive year a Lady Techster sprinter has won the gold medal in that event.

Chelsea Hayes finished sixth in the triple jump with a mark of 38-4.75 (11.70m). That is remarkable on two accounts: 1) She passed on all three finals attempts so she could run in the 60m dash finals and 2) She has not triple jumped since high school.
