NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State men's and women's track teams each won their respective titles at the Annual Boston-Moon Classic held at Edward S. Temple Track Saturday. The host TSU men's team scored 137 total points. Sewanee edged Middle Tennessee State for second place, scoring 116-113. Western Kentucky (69) and Fisk (37) rounded out the men's team scoring. The Tigerbelles rolled to the women's victory, scoring 250.50 points.

"It was an enjoyable day with good performances," said Kelly Carter, TSU men's coach and meet director. "As far as our team, we saw where our strengths were and where we are lacking right now.
