AUSTIN, Texas – Johnathan Cabral came from behind to win the 110 meter hurdles with the fastest time in the nation this season Saturday at the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays.
The sophomore from Calabasas, Calif., was mired in fifth place over the final hurdle before putting on a furious rush to the finish line to win in a wind-aided 13.33. That was an all-conditions personal best and is the fastest in the NCAA in 2013.
Cabral clipped Clemson’s Spencer Adams, who ran 13.47, as well as Terrence Sommerville of Cincinnati (13.48) and Keiron Stewart of Texas (13.51) in a tight finish.
Had Cabral’s time been wind legal, it would have broken Eric Mitchum’s 2004 school record of 13.38.
Also on Saturday, the women’s 4x100 meter relay team finished third in 43.93. Texas A&M won in a meet record 42.56, with Texas second at 43.59.
The Ducks’ quartet of Phyllis Francis, English Gerdner, Chizoba Okodogbe and Jenna Prandini came through the line with the fourth fastest time in school history.
Sophomore Chancey Summers had a seasonal best clearance in the high jump at 5-8.75/1.75m to finish ninth.
