ERNEST HONORED BY SEC: For the third time in the outdoor season, LSU sprinter Aaron Ernest has been named the SEC Men’s Freshman of the Week for his performance last weekend at the Penn Relays.
Ernest shattered his wind-legal personal record in the 100 meters with the fastest run of the qualifying round at 10.26 seconds to earn a spot in the final in his Penn Relays debut. He then ran a 10.47 in the final to finish second as Jamaica’s Jacques Harvey won with a 10.26.
Ernest is the NCAA’s No. 1-ranked freshman sprinter in the 100 with top wind-aided and wind-legal times of 10.15 and 10.26 seconds, respectively.
He also ran the second leg of LSU’s 4x100-meter relay team that recorded a season’s-best of 39.49 seconds to take third place in the final.
