In the mile, first-year Ian McDonald (Richmond, Va./Douglas S. Freeman) and sophomore Levi Warring (Williamsburg, Va./Lafayette) both set personal-bests. McDonald finished in 4:27.05 and Warring crossed the finish line in 4:29.82.

First-year Patrick Robertson (Norfolk, Va./Norfolk Academy) set a new career-best in the weight throw with a toss of 14.19m (46'06.75"). His previous best was 13.13m (43'01.00").

The 4x400m relay took fourth out of 18 teams with a time of 3:24.845. The quartet consisted of sophomore Charlie Zachariades (Chatham, N.J./Chatham), first-years Isidro Camacho (Brooklyn, N.Y./Xavier) and Jack Jones (Lookout Mountain, Ga./McCallie School) and Tallman.
