The Tigers have four athletes listed to make their LSU debuts this weekend; Jaden James in the men’s discus throw, Larriviere in the men’s javelin, Shakeem McKay in the men’s 4×400-meter relay, and Tana Monk in the women’s 1500 meter.

Alia Armstrong is set to come back this week in the women’s 4×100-meter relay and the 100-meter hurdles. Armstrong started the season on The Bowerman Watch List but was dropped due to only competing in one meet during the indoor season. The junior took home the NCAA outdoor title for the 100-meter hurdles last year with a time of 12.57 seconds in the final. She set her personal best in the prelims at 12.55 seconds, which ranks seconds in LSU history behind Tonea Marshall.

More information about the meet has yet to be released at this time and will most likely come out Friday morning before the meet starts.
