MIRAMAR, Fla. - Louisiana Tech freshman Trey Hadnot ran close to a personal record Saturday evening as he claimed the bronze medal with a third-place finish in the 200m dash at the Pan Am Junior Championships at the Ansin Sports Complex in the Miami suburb of Miramar.

Hadnot ran 20.82, only two-hundredths of a second from a personal record time, to finish third. The Ruston native beat Trinidad and Tobago's Morain Morain (21.15) to secure a medal.

Grenada's Kirani James ran 20.53 to win the gold while American Sean McLean took home silver with a time of 20.69.

Hadnot got off to a slow start during the indoor season but had a breakout performance in the Louisiana Tech hosted Jim Mize Invitational on April 2. He went on to become a four-time WAC Champion during the outdoor season while being named the WAC Freshman of the Year and the WAC Track Athlete of the Year.

A product of Ruston High School, Hadnot finished third in the 200m at the USA Track and Field Junior Championships in June to earn an invitation to compete on the international stage for Team USA. He is the only member of the United States' men's roster from the state of Louisiana.
