Laird v Boling in 2021 NCAA East Regional: day 3

Terrance Laird and Matthew Boling will face-off in the quarterfinals of the men’s 100m at the 2021 NCAA East Preliminary Regional meeting on Friday.

Terrance Laird and Matthew Boling will face-off in the quarterfinals of the men’s 100-meters at the 2021 NCAA East Preliminary Regional track and field meeting here in Jacksonville, FL, on Friday in the battle for places to the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Laird and Boling will go head-to-head in the third quarterfinals, with the LSU junior starting from lane five and the Georgia sophomore next to him in lane six. Laird enters this clash on the back of a comfortable performance in the heat, while although not looking as smooth, Boling also won his heat and seems to have more left in the tank.

Laird leads the nation in both the 100m and 200m with times of 9.80 (+3.2) and a world-leading 19.81.
