Surprises were bound to happen at New Balance Nationals Outdoor. 

Maybe the biggest on Saturday? 

It was Lisa Raye -- and not Adaejah Hodge -- setting a new girls meet record in the 100 meter championship.

The West Warwick (RI) sophomore ran a wind-legal time of 11.26 (+1.3) seconds on Saturday at Franklin Field, beating her meet record of 11.29 set in the prelims yesterday. 

Her finals performance also tied for a U.S. No. 4 mark.

It also came after Hodge, who entered the day as the U.S. No. 1 leader in the 100m, took her time getting to the start line. 

Raye wasn't fazed. 

Saturday's run also marks a new personal record for the Rhode Islander. 

She's coming off a state title in the 100m earlier this month with a time of 11.37. Prior to the 100m final, Raye also raced in the 4x100 with Jailynn Huffman, Xenia Raye and Tatianna Baldinell, finishing tenth running a 47.44. 

To finish off her weekend, Raye is entered in the girls 200m championship.

Pennsauken's Sianni Wynn finished second in the 100m girls final, with a time of 11.49, while Hodge was third in 11.51.

Meanwhile, there was no sight of Christian Miller in the boys 100m final. 

After setting a new Franklin Field record on Friday with a time of 9.95 seconds, the Creekside senior skipped out on the final. That left a championship for American Heritage's Zamarii Sanders, who ran a winning time of 10.27. 

Sanders is also entered in the boys 200m. 

During last year's outdoor season, Sanders clocked the second-fastest 100m time in freshman class history with a 10.40 at the Louie Bing Invitational. He was also a part of his Florida team's sub-40 effort in the 4x100 at the state championships. 

Gabriel Scott finished second in the boys final and ran a time of 10.37.
