Two athletes and a relay team bettered their qualification times.

Marissa Mosely improved upon her 200 meter time, finishing at 25.24 in 14th place. The 4x400 women's relay team recorded an eighth-place 3:53.54 time, and Lamar Baskin beat his 60 meter hurdle mark with his fifth-place 8.08. Also in the 60 meter hurdles, Tracy Drew met the provisional mark in the preliminaries with an 8.44 time.

The women's distance medley team won the race in a time of 12:57.67, good for a provisional qualification.

In the pole vault, Seth Brown hit the provisional standard with a 15-1 effort, but he already qualified in December for the national meet.
