Hughes, a four-time, All-Sun Belt Conference performer, posted a time of 14.07 seconds to finish fifth overall in his heat and eclipse his previous mark (14.09) set at the LSU Invitational in April.
The final day of competition begins on Saturday at 1:45 p.m., CT, with Louisiana's remaining competitor – Crowley native Damon Guidry – competing in the men's high jump at 3 p.m.
