Brianna Lyston Shines at SEC Championships Women’s 100m, Sets Meet Record

Brianna Lyston took the SEC women’s 100m title Saturday evening in a personal best and meet record 10.91. Although the victory was sweet and satisfying, it was not without drama.

The favorite coming into the day was Tennessee’s Jacious Sears, who holds the fastest time in the NCAA and the world in 10.77. However, she unfortunately stumbled mid-race, leaving the door open for the young sophomore NCAA 60m champion to win an outdoor straightaway-bound sprint as well.

Lyston kept her composure all the way through the line, edging out Kaila Jackson (10.95) of Georgia and fellow LSU Tiger Thelma Davies (11.01).

The former Hydel and St. Jago standout also helped LSU to a bronze in the women’s 4×100 (42.49) and was fourth in the 200m final in 22.37.
