Baylor freshman Trayvon Bromell made a sparkling debut in the 100 meters Saturday at the Texas Relays in Austin.

Bromell set a meet record by winning in 10.01 seconds, a victory that came barely 24 hours after he first smashed the old mark with the top time in qualifying.

He ran the 200 a week ago at a meet at TCU and won in his first outdoors meet. But his qualifying time of 10.02 on Friday broke the meet record of 10.06 set by Texas A&M’s Gerald Phiri in 2011 final.

Texas’ Morolake Akinosun won the women’s 100 in a wind-aided 11.10. She also ran the first leg as the Texas women won the 800 relay in 1:31.58.

The Texas A&M men won the 800 relay for the third consecutive year, with a world-leading 1:20.78, matching the winning time they ran a year ago.
