LSU has six athletes set to compete in two individual events. Terrance Laird (100m, 200m), JuVaughn Harrison (high jump, long jump), Symone Mason (100m, 200m), Brittley Humphrey (100m hurdles, 400m hurdles), Milan Young (100m hurdles, 400m hurdles), and Serena Bolden (long jump, triple jump) will all be double dipping this week. Laird and Mason will also run on LSU’s 4×100 meter relay squads, and the duo of Humphrey and Young are candidates for LSU’s 4×400 meter relay.

How To Advance

The country is split up into two regions – the East and the West – and if an athlete is ranked in the top 48 of their respective event in their region, they earn the right to compete at the regional meet; each discipline has a total of 96 competitors attempting to advance to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon. Twelve out of the 48 from the East and 12 out of the 48 from the West will advance to the final site where the national champion in each event will be decided. In the relays, 24 squads from each region will be fighting for the top 12 regional spots as well with hopes of advancing to the national meet. A total of 24 athletes in each discipline will qualify for the NCAA Championships in June.
