AUSTIN, Texas - Utah State senior AJ Boully seized the crown in the men's 400m hurdles on Friday at the 90th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays, presented by Spectrum.

Boully performed at an elite level, edging out Texas hurdler and 2016 Olympian, Byron Robinson, to win the 400m hurdles with a time of 49.58. Boully's 400m hurdles time ranks third all-time in school history and first in the nation so far this season.


"It was a great day for the Aggies," said veteran USU head coach Gregg Gensel. "I'm proud of AJ. He shows what happens when hard work and great talent meets tough competition and AJ has both of those traits."  

Earlier in the day, Boully also helped the Aggie men place first and qualify for the men's 4x400m relay final with a time of 3:07.99. Boully, along with freshman Michael Bluth, junior Brady Martin and senior Joshua Gordon, will compete in the men's 4x400m final on Saturday at 2:35 p.m. (MT).

On the women's side, senior Christine Van Brocklin-Parker placed 37th in the prelims of the 400m hurdles on Thursday with a time of 1:01.62.

Parker also helped the Aggie squad of senior Breann Bate and freshmen Melanie Sullivan and Ellie Eastmond place 32nd in the prelims of the 4x400m relay with a time of 3:53.02.    

The Mountain West Outdoor Championships will be held in Logan, Utah on May 10-13, just 12 days before the First Round of the NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas, on May 25-27.
