MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Sophomore Sarah Nambawa placed fifth in the triple jump Friday, leading a small group of Middle Tennessee tracksters at the 114th Penn Relays Carnival at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pa.

Nambawa placed fifth in the triple jump on Friday morning with a mark of 42-11.75, her second-best mark of the outdoor season. She finished 15th in the college long jump Thursday after posting a mark of 19-0.75.

The men's 4x100-meter relay of sophomore Phillip Tanner, junior Carl Morgan, senior Carlos Morgan and junior Samuel Adade was 20th in the preliminaries with a time of 41.18 on Friday, while the same foursome finished 12th in the 4x200-meter relay prelims with a time of 1:25.34.

Carlos Morgan placed 20th in the men's college long jump but participated despite being slightly dehydrated because of the very warm weather in Philadelphia on Friday.

Carl and Carlos Morgan are scheduled to compete in the triple jump on Saturday, while the rest of the Blue Raider men's and women's team will take part in the Coach O Invitational in Troy, Ala.
