AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Baylor freshman Trayvon Bromell made an impressive outdoors debut in the 100 meters, winning the Texas Relays and setting a meet record.

Bromell's winning time of 10.01 seconds Saturday broke the meet record mark of 10.02 he set a day earlier in qualifying. Before Bromell arrived for his first Texas Relays, the old record of 10.06 was set by Texas A&M's Gerald Phiri in 2011.

Bromell won easily Saturday with Clemson's Reggie Lewis a distant second at 10.15. Bromell ran the fastest time in the world in the 100 this year and also tied to the world junior record.

Bromell was the Gatorade national high school track athlete of the year in 2013 in St. Petersburg, Fla.
