    Junior transfer Marcus Lesley won the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.74, while sophomore Jim Sulzberger captured the 5,000-meter run title with a time of 15:22.4. Sulzberger's teammate Joseph Mbari placed fourth in the event with a mark of 15:55.5.

    Sophomore sprinter Trent Thompson earned a second-place finish in the 400-meter dash (48.79), while teammate Brandon Cook earned a pair of top-five finishes in both the 100-meter dash (5th, 11.17) and 200-meter dash (21.88).
