Chris Donald was the top finisher in the hurdles finishing in 14.88 seconds.

Jesse Miller took the crown in the high jump with a leap of 6-08 3/4 for NCAA Provisional Qualifying Mark. Trey Miller finished in third after clearing 6-06 3/4.

The Jennies took first and second in the pole vault. Cassie Jennings took first clearing 11-07 3/4 and Callie Ruffener was right behind her with the numbers but took second due to the number of attempts.

Ashlan Burton took first in both the shot put and discus throws.

In the shot put, the Mules dominated, taking first, second and third place. Dalton Lewallen took first (56-10.00), Nathan Cummings finished the event in second (56-06.75), and John Berry rounded out the top three (49-10.00).
