BATON ROUGE, La. — Jared Connaughton won a heat and finished third overall in a field of more than 50 sprinters at the Louisiana State University Alumni Gold track meet in the weekend.

The New Haven, P.E.I. native, was timed in 10.30 in the final of the 100-metre race, just behind Trindon Holliday of LSU (10.17) and Gerald Phiri of Texas A&M (10.20).

Connaughton, competing for Team Canada, also was a member of the 4x100 relay team which finished second in 39.25 seconds, trailing only the LSU A team (39.17). The Tigers are ranked first in NCAA Division 1.
Next up for Connaughton are the Penn Relays this weekend.
