Louisiana Tech's Antoinette Cobb, Quanisha Sales and Monique Wright set meet and facility records Saturday as Tech competed at the Northwestern State Invitational in Natchitoches.

Cobb, as usual, dominated the 100m hurdles by setting a new meet and complex record with a time of 13.27. Cobb, who has run the four fastest 100m hurdle times in the WAC this season, added another number to that list with her second-fastest 100m hurdle time and a mark that ranks second in school history. She also ran 23.26 to finish third in the 200m, the fourth-best time in school history and a mark that ranks 16th in the nation while also setting a new personal record in the 100m dash, running 11.66 as she finished third.

Sales won the 100m dash with a time of 11.51, a mark that ranks fourth in school history. Sales also won the 200m dash and broke the NSU facility and meet record with a time of 23.12, a time that ranks second in school history behind Latonia Wilson's school record mark of 22.80 set in 2007. In addition, her 200m time currently ranks her ninth in the nation.

In the 400m, Monique Wright set a new NSU meet record, winning the race with a time of 54.23. Two other Lady Techsters were at the top of the final standings with Kamelia Story placing third with a time of 54.61 and Lashannda Worthy placing fourth, running 54.93.

Tech dominated the jumps on the women's side as well with Chelsea Hayes jumping 19' 9.75" in the long jump, a mark that ties for fifth in school history as she placed second at the meet. Quatisha Williams won the triple jump with a mark of 39' 10.75" while Sapphira Brown placed third, jumping 39' 5.25".

On the men's side, Albert Fullwood finished second in 400m with a time of 46.49, a time that ranks second in school history.

In the 200m dash, Kevin Stewart and Terry Carter finished 1-2 with Stewart running a personal-best 21.04 and Carter posting a time of 21.18. Stewart and Carter paired with Fullwood and Josh Goree to win the 4x100m relay with a season-best time of 40.28.

Billy Ray Walker continued to set the standard in the 110m hurdles as the junior ran a season-best time of 14.22 to win that race.

Justin Martin and Larry Jones both changed Tech's record books in the javelin with Martin's throw of 208' 11" ranking third in school history and Jones' mark of 208' 3" ranks fourth in school history.
