There will be many events to anticipate the next couple days, including the women’s trio of Bowerman watch list members competing in their indoor-specialty events.

A much anticipated 800-meter season debut will be made this weekend as Michaela Rose’s collegiate record setting indoor campaign continues. The No. 4 performer on the all-time collegiate list for the 800m currently holds a PR and LSU record time of 2:00.18. Rose dipped under the sub-two-minute mark more than anyone else in collegiate history during her outdoor season last year, and will look to continue that trend as she takes on her favorite event on Friday.

Sophomore Brianna Lyston is returning to the track where she blazed to an LSU-recording tying time of 7.07 seconds. The Jamaican will look to continue to improve on her nation-leading time and possibly break her tie with Aleia Hobbs in her second 60-meter race of the season.

The Rhinestone Queen, Alia Armstrong, will look to continue her sub-eight second tour as she takes on the 60-metr hurdles once again. Armstrong currently holds the nation lead with a time of 7.92@ seconds. The New Orleans native will look to break the 7.90 barrier and get closer to her LSU record of 7.86 seconds that she set in 2022. Armstrong will also compete in the 60m.
