John Muller qualified for the IC4A mile by running 4:14.46, a personal-best by over three seconds while Zach Jordan cracked the IC4A qualifying standard in the 35-lbs weight throw with a throw of 17.53 meters (57-6.25).  In the 3000 meters
the four Tribe harriers running took the first four positions with career-best and IC4A-qualifying times.  Alex McGrath ran 8:18.06 for the win and a 13-second personal-best, while grad student Lewis Woodard was second in 8:21.26, over three seconds faster than his previous best.  Rad Gunzenhauser ran 8:22.37 and Ted Richardson finished fourth in 8:24.68.

In the 3,000m, freshman Elaina Balouris (above) ran 9:47.89 to win the event and qualify for the ECAC Championships followed by  Kathleen Lautzenheiser who shaved almost 10 seconds off of her previous-best to run 9:50.04 and take second.  Lautzenheiser also came in under the ECAC barrier, her first championship qualification. In the pole vault, freshman Nicole Dory continued her strong rookie campaign by taking fifth with a height of 3.35 meters (10-11.75).
