N.C. A&T senior sprinter Desmond Lawrence finished seventh in the 100-meter dash at the NCAA Track and Field Outdoor Championships on Friday

Lawrence, who graduated from Southern High School, was trying bring home A&T’s first national championship. He ran a 10.24 two days after running a personal-best 10.12 to qualify for the final.

Baylor’s Trayvon Bromell won the national championship with a 9.97.

Lawrence did become the first Aggie in history to earn first-team All-America honors in the 100.
