SENIOR NICK HORTON SELECTED AS OVC MALE TRACK ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
NASHVILLE --- Senior Nick Horton of the Tennessee State men's track and field team was selected as this week's co-Ohio Valley Conference Male Track Athlete of the Week. He shares the honor with Eastern Kentucky's Chris Franklin. The Milwaukee, Wis. native took first place in the 200m over the weekend at the Gatorade Classic hosted by Southeast Missouri State. His time of 21.15 automatically qualifies him for the NCAA Regionals in the event. It is also the best time in the OVC by more than seven-tenths of a second. Horton was previously tabbed OVC Male Track Athlete of the Week two times during the indoor season.
