LSU’s Alia Armstrong repeated as the Southeastern Conference women’s Runner of the Week the conference announced Tuesday.
Armstrong has registered two NCAA-leading times, at her first meet at the Miami Hurricane Invitational two weeks ago, and again in this past weekend’s Battle on the Bayou.
She took first in the 100-meter hurdles (13.06) and then took part of the 4×100-meter relay team that placed first among collegians with a time of 44.02 seconds in Coral Gables, Florida. Those two times earned her the first SEC weekly honor of the season.
Armstrong became the first women to go sub-13 seconds in the 100 hurdles this season (12.82) in her team’s first home outdoor meet of the season. She also helped improve her team’s 4×100 national-lead with a time of 43.27 seconds.
Armstrong currently holds two national leads and is part of the newly ranked No. 1 women’s team in the nation.
