Freshman Marcus Ghent finished third in the long jump with a leap of 24 feet, 1.5 inches.
Senior Charmille Kirton's 150-foot, 3-inch hurl was good for third in the diiscus. Freshman Miriam Pierre threw 141-4 in the discus, good for seventh and finished sixth in the shot put with a 43-11 3/4 put.
Sophomore Tikiera Relaford jumped 5 feet, 7 3/4 inches to finish fifth in the high jump.
