After a couple meets in March, and four more in April, Hackett was back to her best in May.

In Louisiana, USA, she earned Southeastern Conference (SEC) women’s 100 metres silver for Louisiana State University (LSU) in a personal best 11.10 seconds. And at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division 1 Outdoor Track and Field Championship East Preliminary meet, in Florida, Hackett clocked 22.55 seconds in the 200 metres – a new T&T record.
