Saturday’s meet will be in honor of the late Keyth Talley, who was a standout sprinter and relay runner in his two seasons with the Tigers in 2011 and 2012. The Round Rock, Texas, native was crowned an NCAA champion as a member of LSU’s 4×100-meter relay team during his senior season in 2012. Talley ran the third leg on the relay that clocked what was the third-fastest time in school history and seventh-fastest time in collegiate history at 38.38 seconds to win LSU’s eighth NCAA sprint relay title all-time.

Talley also earned First Team All-America honors with a fourth-place finish in the national final of the 4×100 relay in 2011. He was also a member of LSU’s 4×400-meter relay team that won the SEC Indoor title and NCAA Indoor bronze medal during the 2012 season. Talley graduated from LSU in August of 2012 with a degree in sport administration with a concentration in sport commerce.
