NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State University men's team will look to move up in the standing when the Tigers travel to the 2005 O'Reilly Track and Field Championships set for May 6-7 in Clarksville at Austin Peay State University. Coach Kelly Carter's team is expected to compete for the title in several events. Eastern Illinois will be the favorite to capture its ninth straight title. Marcus Morris and Michael Smith posted the second and third best times, respectively, during the regular season in 110-meter hurdles. Morris was just nine-hundreds of a second off the time of 14.54 seconds held by EIU's Kirkland Thornton. Sophomore Saihou is expected to provide scoring for TSU in the high jump, long jump, and triple jump. Freshman Buford Williams should contend in the long jump. There will be a total of seven men's teams in the field. The meet begins at 1 p.m. Friday and will resume at 10 a.m. Saturday in APSU's Governors Stadium.
