Tollis Johnson was able to get the win in the long jump with a mark of 6.48 meters. The men’s 4×100 relay team of Dajon Wise, Otis Tisdale, Tollis Johnson, and Justin Avery ran a time of 42.96 to capture the event win. The last win of the day came from the mile relay team comprised of Justin Avery, Otis Tisdale, Antonio Washington, and William Tatum running a time of 3:32.01.

On the women’s side the Lady Blue Bears picked up three event wins from Quanera Hayes in the 100 meter dash running 12.23, Ebony Moore in shot put with a throw of 11.08 meters and Miracle Wigfall in the discus throwing 29.30 meters for the win.
