Eugene, Oregon – LSU dominated the team scores at the 2021 NCAA Outdoor Championships on Friday night after tallying 84 points to win the team title by 31 points at Hayward Field. Head coach Dennis Shaver was confident that if everything went according to plan, his team would have no problem winning and the Tigers achieved the objective early into the third day of competition.

On its way to winning the men’s team title, the top-ranked LSU men’s collected five individual event titles, with (Terrance Laird, 100 meters), (Sean ‘Squirrel’ Burrell, 400-meters hurdles), (JuVaughn Harrison, long jump, high jump), (Tzuriel Pedigo, javelin throw), and the 4×100 meter relay team landing gold medals.

The Tigers, who were backed to dominate the championships, were declared early champions after Burrell won the 400m hurdles, and even before Laird ran the 200m and Harrison ended the high jump competition.

“It means a lot because there have been so many times we’ve been second at this meet,” Shaver said after the victory. “To be able to win it is pretty exciting. We came out here and dominated the meet in a lot of ways and that made it special for us.”

Freshman Burrell, who switched to the 400m hurdles after being the third-best 400m runner on the team, was delighted with his contributions.

“It’s an honor to just win my event title,” Burrell said. “I run for my city, Baton Rouge is where I grew up. So to become a national champion at this school means the most to me.

“I kept preaching to myself that I was gonna go sub 48, and I got out today. I knew I could finish strong and when that time popped up I was like ‘oh yeah.”

Oregon finished second with 53 points, while North Carolina A&T which had the individual 400m champion – Randolph Ross (43.85) – and the 400m title, finished third with 35 points. Completing the top five were Florida with 34.5 points and USC with 33 points.
