COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Alexis Gray won two events Friday to lead the Lady Tigers of Texas Southern University at the first day of Texas A&M’s Ted Nelson Invitational.

In the 60-meter dash, Gray won the final event with a time of 7.49 seconds. The time was only eight-hundredths of a second off her time in last year’s event, when she set the meet record in the 60-meter dash.
In the 400-meter run, TSU’s Nikole Haroon took third place with a time of 57.11 seconds. She finished second among four-year college competitors.
In the field events, Quintella Johnson’s fifth-place finish in the high jump highlighted TSU’s performances. Her highest jump cleared 1.67 meters.
