Individual first place honors were achieved by two Bulldogs. Ben Westerfeld was a winner in the pole vault competition with a height of 12-feet. Sophomore Kevin Bedel won the discus competition with a distance of 122-06.

Second place finishers for the Bulldogs included Heil (400m run), Yorn (800m run), Matt Dennis (300m hurdles), Robert Strobel (pole vault) and Jordan Moorman (discus).
