Cole Collins continued the theme of freshman success with a season-best throw of 169-6 (51.67m) to take seventh in the javelin, while Jared Budzinski (136-11 / 41.74m) was 11th. Emily Stiles (138-7 / 42.26m) logged a top-five finish on the women’s side, taking fifth place. Liz Gaffney (113-0 / 34.45m) took 12th.

Taj Dorsett was active in the triple and long jump, taking sixth and 13th place, respectively, in the two events.

Bryce Kirby also had a busy day in the sprints as he placed 11th in the 100m premiere race with a solid time of 10.64 after running a 22.22 to place 16th in the 200m.

Courtney Hutchison led the way for the Bronco shot putters with a seventh-place day thanks to a 47-0.25 (14.33m) while Baylee Dodd (38-10.50 / 11.85m) took 13th. Chris Kiley was 10th for the men with a 48-4.75 (14.75m).
