Seniors Jordan Mullen and Ethan Holmes earned fourth and sixth place in the 100-meter dash with times of 10.99 and 11.1 seconds, respectively. The 1,600-meter relay team of sophomore Kaleb VanCleave, freshman Neil Flattery, and seniors Keaton Rickels and Ryan Weir earned second place at 3:14.16, and Flattery earned fourth in the 800 meters with his time of 1:53.56, a personal best. 

The team also recorded numerous first-place finishes. Holmes earned first in the 200 meters with a time of 21.67. Freshman Klyvens Delaunay earned first place in the triple jump at 48-8, and sophomore Gabe Hull took first place in the shot put with a mark of 54-3¾.
