NASHVILLE --- Day one of the Music City Challenge at the Vanderbilt Multipurpose Facility turned out to be a success for the Tennessee State men’s track and field team.

Also in a field event, fellow senior Kenji Anderson (Cordova, Tenn.) cleared the high jump bar at 2.01m (6'7"), his second-best performance in the event this indoor season. The effort earned him seventh place on the day.
