Walton finished fourth in the long jump with his record leap, and Daniel Forjan took fifth in the shot put at 49 feet, 7.5 inches.

The Eagles had three of the top seven finishers in high men's high jump, as David Danek took third at 2.00 meters, Walton took fourth at 2.0 meters, and Ben Onguene was seventh at 1.85 meters.
