HOUSTON – The national championship contending Wiley College men's track and field team raised the bar in the 4 x 100-meter relay, 4 x 200-meter relay and 400-meter dash as it ran its fastest time since 2008 Saturday at the Texas Southern Relays.

The team of Moriba Morain (JR/Pleasance Park, Trinidad ), Oraine Palmer (SO/Kingston, Jamaica), Machael Mark (SR/Princess Town, Trinidad) and Quinn-Lee Ralph (SR/Trinidad &Tobago) ran 40.11 in the 4 x 100-meter relay – which beat their previous best set during the preliminaries at last season's NAIA Championship. The same relay team finished fourth in the 4 x 200-meter relay at 1:24.40 – which was two seconds faster than the program's previous best since 2008. Rajay Hamilton (JR/Jamaica) ran the 400-meter dash in 47.47 – which beat Kimorie Shearman (FR/St. Vincent)'s mark of 47.97 on March 3 and beat the NAIA 'A' championship qualifying standard. Hamilton finished third and also finished sixth in the 800-meter run (1:55.86).

Ralph won the 200-meter dash with a time of 21.31 – which surpassed the NAIA 'A' Championship qualifying standard.
