FLYING TIGERS DISPLAY FIGHT AT OVC MEET
Monday, May 9, 2005
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. --- Though he has had teams finish higher in the Ohio Valley Conference Track and Field Championships, Tennessee State coach Kelly Carter could not have been prouder of his team's effort over the weekend. "These guys fought through a lot of adversity this season," said Carter. "This is one of our best meets as far as team chemistry as we all came together. We have placed higher, but this is special." The Flying Tigers finished fifth in the team scoring with 66.5 points, five points behind Samford for fourth place. Mbenga Saihou won the long jump with a leap of 7.34 meters. Franklin Rivers was eighth in the long jump. Saihou also scored with an eight place finish in the high jump, one spot behind freshman Buford Williams, who has been hampered by an injury. The duo placed swapped places in the triple jump, finishing sixth and seventh, respectively. Chris Howell was second in the 200-meters with a time of 21.26 seconds. Howell also was third in the 100-meters in with a time of 10.78. EKU's Dallas Robinson won both events. Marcus Morris was second in the 110-hurdles with a time of 15.20. Patrick Robinson was in a third-place tie in the 400-meters with a time of 48.49. Robinson also placed eighth in the 200-meters. "This year, is something we can build on," said Carter. "With the athletes we have returning and those joining our program. We hope to be competing for the title before too long." Southeast Missouri ended Eastern Illinois' nine-year reign as league champion with a 220.5-211.5 win. Eastern Kentucky was third with 105. Austin Peay served as this year's host.
