In the field events, junior Bryce Stricker earned a pair of top-five finishes, headlined by his effort in the hammer throw where he placed second overall on a throw of 164'4.75" (50.11 meters). Austin McManus finished three places behind in fifth at 143'10.25" (43.85 meters), while Grant Balogh followed with a new personal record in ninth place at 121'4" (36.98 meters).
