Records falling all over the place

Watch your head, or you might get hit with one.

Earlier today, LSU and Texas A&M both broke the Penn Relays record in the college women's 4x100-meter Championship of America.

The Tigers (Kelly Ann Baptiste, Brooklynn Morris, Samantha Henry and Kenyanna Wilson) won the race in 42.59 seconds, and the Aggies (Elizabeth Adeoti, Porscha Lucas, Simone Facey and Gabby Mayo) finished second in 42.69. 

The previous Penn Relays record, 42.73 seconds, was set by LSU's Stephanie Durst, Monique Hall, Lolo Jones and Muna Lee in 2003.

Lee went on to race for the U.S. women's team, including a trip to Athens four years ago and a gold medal in the 4x100 at the 2005 World Championships.

The overall college record, a wind-assisted 42,50, was set all the way back in 1989. LSU also holds that mark, with a team comprised of Tananjalyn Stanley, Dawn Sowell, Cinnamon Sheffield and Esther Jones.

Those are some great names right there. 

And just now, LSU did set a new college record: 52.77 seconds in the Shuttle Hurdles championship.

The team was Tanaya Jones, Nickeisha Wilson, Angel Boyd and Jessica Ohanaja. 

Then Bill Collins of Houston Elite set a new world record in the Men's Masters 55+ 100-meter dash, 11.44 seconds.
