Brian Davis also set a new season-best in the 400m with his time of 48.92, good enough for a fourth-place finish on the day, while Erin Jenkins (51.88) and Josh Gandy (53.26) finished in 19th place and 22nd place, respectively.

In the women's 400m, the Wolfpack sent five runners to the starting block with Tiana Patillo coming in fastest for State with a time of 56.09, good for a fifth-place finish. Denae Ford (57.71) ended up in 15th, while Tatyana Glasgow (17th), Sharese Roberts (20th) and Colleen McGuire (22nd) rounded out the rest of the Pack runners.

Elizabeth Shuman finished in seventh place in the women's high jump with a leap of 1.75m, while Caitlynn Filla registered a 13th-place finish with her height of 1.65m in the high jump.

Tremanisha Taylor secured a fifth-place showing in the women's shot put with a throw of 14.96m, while SeQuoia Watkins came in 11th with an effort of 13.74m.
