NASHVILLE --- For the second time in as many weeks, senior Nick Horton of the Tennessee State men's track and field team has been named the Ohio Valley Conference Male Track Athlete of the Week. The Milwaukee, Wisc. native took first place in the 200m over the weekend at the Tennessee State Collegiate Invitational. His time of 21.63 provisionally qualifies him for the NCAA Indoor Championships, which will be held March 12-13 at the Randal Tyson Indoor Track in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The University of Arkansas will host the event. Last week, Horton brought home the Male Athlete of the Week honor after winning the 400m with a time of 47.61 at the MTSU Blue Raider Invitational.
