NASHVILLE --- Senior Nick Horton of the Tennessee State men's track and field team picked up his first indoor season honor this week, being tabbed as the Male Track Athlete of the Week by the Ohio Valley Conference. The Milwaukee, Wisc. native ran a blistering 47.61 in the 400m over the weekend at the MTSU Blue Raider Invitational. The time is almost two seconds faster than the closest competitor and it is the fastest 400m time ran so far this season. Horton also set a new indoor record in the event. Last year, Horton won both the 200m (21.63) and 400m (46.85) at OVC Outdoor Championships.
