AUSTIN, Texas - Antoinette Cobb continued to redefine the standard for Louisiana Tech Saturday as the redshirt senior smashed the school record in the 100m hurdles with a time of 13.22 in the short hurdle invitational on the final day of the 83rd Annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays.
Cobb's time of 13.22 is the fastest 100m hurdles time of any WAC athlete since 1999 as she broke the old school record of 13.28 set by Doria Appleberry in 2005. With her 13.22 mark, Cobb is ranked eighth nationally and fourth in the NCAA East rankings.

The men's 4x400m relay finished second in the finals with a time of 3:08.49, beating teams from North Texas, Kansas and Houston. The time of 3:08.49 ranks the Bulldog relay team 16th in the NCAA East rankings and 26th nationally. The Bulldogs relay mark leads all WAC relays by a commanding seven seconds.
Meanwhile, the men's 4x200m relay team ran the fifth-fastest time in school history as they placed fifth with a time of 1:25.44.
