A trio of Buccaneer student-athletes shined Tuesday night as freshman Nic Chernikow (Seymour, Tenn.), junior Mike Wright (Chattanooga, Tenn.) and senior Johnny Tucker (Spartanburg, S.C.) all set season-bests in their respective events.

 

Chernikow, making his 100-meter debut, recorded a time of 11.30, placing him 15th overall. 

 

Also on the track, Wright crossed the finish line with a time of 14.93 in the 110-meter hurdles, besting his old mark of 15.14; while Tucker placed ninth in the 100-meters with a time of 10.86.
