TAMPA, Fla. - The Tennessee State men's track and field team completed a successful first day of the Bulls Invitational on Thursday in the team's first outdoor action of the season.
Roc-M Nesbitt (Atlanta, Ga.) wasted little time making his presence felt in the discus. Nesbitt’s first attempt sailed 47.30m (155’2”), which was good enough for second overall. It was Nesbitt’s first time competing in the discus in his college career.
Kareem Nicholas (Atlanta, Ga.) took third in the long jump with a personal record distance of 7.35m (24’1.5”). Nicholas’ previous career best was 7.31m (23’11.75”) at the Commodore Invitational during the indoor season.
Shaquille Cragwall (Lebanon, Tenn.) also set a personal record in the long jump, reaching 7.12m (23’4.5”) for sixth, besting his distance of 7.09m (23’3.25”) from this year’s Ohio Valley Conference Indoor Championship. Taking 10th in the long jump was Marc McCoy (Tampa, Fla.) with an effort of 6.66m (21’10.25”).
On Kyle Washington-Scott (St. Louis, Mo.)’s second attempt in the hammer throw, he came up with a distance of 48.66m (159’8”) to take ninth.
In the high jump, Kenji Anderson (Cordova, Tenn.) cleared the bar at 1.88m to tie for 10th place.
