The Ragin' Cajuns finished ahead of Oklahoma (44.90), West Texas A&M (45.69), North Texas (45.78) and TCU (45.91).
Brooklynne Wilson finished fifth overall in the women's discus for Louisiana, posting a mark of 159-7 while Rylan Theyard (49-7 ¾) and John Joseph (48-10 ¾) finished fourth and eighth overall in the men's triple jump.
Louisiana will return to action on Saturday (April 3) when it travels to Baton Rouge to compete at the Battle on the Bayou at LSU's Bernie Moore Track Stadium.
