Liberty University’s Michael Todd of Anchorage was part of the victorious 4×400-meter relay team at the Big South Conference Championships in High Point, North Carolina.

Entering the meet on the NCAA East Preliminary Round bubble, the relay team improved its chances at qualifying after lowering its season-best time from 3:09.00 to 3:08.19. That time was a meet and facility record.

That 4×400 squad’s time became the fifth-fastest in Liberty and Big South history.

Todd, of ACS fame, ran the second leg in a 47.4-second split. Last year he led off the relay with a sub-48 split as the team placed second for the second straight year.

It was the first Big South individual or relay title for him since his 800 indoor championship in 2016.

Todd has also racked up three team championships with Liberty, which has won a record 12 straight conference championships and 23 in 25 years.
