NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State men’s track and field team concluded a successful Music City Challenge with a number of top performances on Saturday at the Vanderbilt Multipurpose Facility.

Quamel Prince (Nashville, Tenn.) headlined the day for the Flying Tigers by earning second overall and first among collegiate runners in the 800m with a time of 1:48.44, a personal record for the indoor 800m. It is the best time by an OVC runner this indoor season and good for 17th in the nation.

In the 4x400m relay, Prince teamed with James Faison (Decatur, Ga.), Malik Wright (Tampa, Fla.) and Jamario Scott (Cincinnati, Ohio) for a fourth place finish. The team’s 3:13.85 time is the best in the Ohio Valley Conference this season.

Kareem Nicholas (Atlanta, Ga.) placed ninth in the long jump with a distance of 7.25m (23’9.5”), while Kyle Washington-Scott (St. Louis, Mo.) earned 10th in the shot put with a toss of 16.97m (55’8.25”), a career best for shot put indoors.

On the track, Kenji Anderson (Cordova, Tenn.) just missed a spot in the final of the 60m hurdles, clocking in at 8.32 in the prelims for 11th. Wright also came away with a strong performance in the prelims of the 60m with a time of 7.10.

Next on the schedule is the OVC Indoor Championship on Feb. 24-25 in Charleston, Ill.
