Terrance Laird Awarded Commissioner’s Trophy



BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU sprinter Terrance Laird won the Commissioner’s Trophy on Saturday after the conclusion of the SEC Outdoor Track and Field Championships. The trophy is given to the individual who scores the most points at the conference meet.

Laird racked up 22.5 points for LSU as he won individual titles in the 100 meters and 200 meters, and also anchored the LSU 4×100 meter relay to gold. Laird got his day started with another one of his walk downs on the 4×100 meter relay. LSU was in third place when Laird got the stick after the final exchange, but that changed quickly. He closed on the two competitors in front of him and helped LSU win the event with a time of 38.87.
