Crawfish and cheesesteaks

West Catholic grad LaTavia Thomas just anchored LSU to victory in the college women's 4x800-meter Championship of America.

She had a nice battle going with Tennessee star Sarah Bowman going into the last turn, but Thomas pulled away in the end for a comfortable victory.

The Tigers' time was 8:30.98, the Volunteers' 8:32.60. 

Thomas' split was 2:03.08.
