Thompson, who was competing in her second meet of the outdoor season, was the top collegiate finisher in the 400m as she ran a lifetime-best of 52.73 (2nd overall). That mark ranks ninth in the NCAA this season.

Price won the long jump with a season-best mark of 20-2.25 and also tied for sixth in the 100m with a time of 11.76.

Skiba won the 5000m with a lifetime-best run of 17:21.36.

In the 200m, Breyonna Hunter placed third in the open section with a season-best time of 24.97. Sarah Toberty finished second in the open 800m (2:13.07), while Paisley Pettway was sixth in the invite 800m with a season-best time of 2:08.99.

Brea Buchanan ran a season-best of 13.75 in the 100m hurdles to finish sixth overall in the invite section. Alexis Walker pulled double duty on Saturday, competing in both the 400m hurdles and high jump. Walker ran a lifetime-best of 1:00.09 in the intermediates to finish seventh overall and tied for fourth in the high with a mark of 5-5.25. Zibby Boyer also tied for fourth with Walker in the high jump with an equal clearance of 5-5.25.

In the pole vault, Bruin alum and former All-American Katy Viuf won with a clearance of 14-7.25. Another alum, Megan Jamerson, was second with a mark of 13-8.25. Current Bruins Allison Koressel and Courtney Reginato tied for third with equal clearances of 13-00.25.
