Redshirt freshman Scott Cook and newcomer Mark Sakioka each cleared 16-3, which equals both of their lifetime-bests from high school.

Alums Dustin DeLeo and Bobby Tally were also competing on the men's side. DeLeo cleared 17-3, while Tally cleared 16-7.

On the women's side, senior Tori Anthony led the way as she vaulted 13-7. Junior Allison Koressel cleared 13-1, while newcomers Kayla Mallett (12-2) and Stevie Kennedy-Gold (11-9) were also in action.

Alums Tori Pena and Katy Viuf were also competing. Pena had a huge day as she broke her own Irish National record with a mark of 14-7. Viuf also had a big clearances, getting over 14-2.
