JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The 52nd Annual Men's NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championships kicked off the first day of the national meet Thursday at David E. Walker Track at Gentry Field.  Dakota State (S.D.) had one event on the first day, the men's 4 x 800-meter relay team.

There were a total of 26 relay teams in the men's 4 x 800-meter relay.  Prior to Thursday's semifinals, the Trojans were seeded No. 21 after clocking a national qualifying time of 7 minutes, 54.36 second at the South Dakota State Indoor Classic on Feb. 10 in Brookings, S.D.

The DSU men's 4 x 800-meter relay team – consisted of Cameron Harming, Alex Derr, Claudio Tejada and Mark Moeller – clocked a season-best time of 7 minutes, 50.26 seconds in the second heat, which was the third-best time in the heat.

To advance to the finals of the 4 x 800-meter relay, a relay team must place first in each heat (4 total heats) plus next 4 relay teams with the best times.  Dakota State fell a pair of places short of advancing to the finals, placing 10th overall.

The NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championships continue on Friday.  Dakota State's Moeller is scheduled to run in the men's 800-meter semifinals at 4 p.m. (Eastern Time)/3 p.m. (Central Time).  A total of 15 runners are scheduled to run in the race.
