David Sellens, a redshirt-senior, was fourth place in the hammer throw with a 52.85m throw.

Right below his teammate, freshman Corbin Chronister finished at fifth place in the hammer. Chronister threw the distance of 52.26m. He then went on to achieve seventh place in the discus throw event with 49.11m mark.

Gabe Gaeta, a redshirt-junior, achieved his personal-best in the 400m hurdles with a time of 53.42, and finished in fourth place.

Senior Tristan Watson contributed to his team, as he finished fifth place in the 110m hurdles with a time of 14.71.

Junior Tim Van Horn cleared the high jump at 2.05m, and earned him fourth place.

Clearing the bar at 3.55m, sophomore Julianne Finch declared the team’s final victory of the day, finishing top 10 in the pole vault event.
