The OBU women improved their national time in the 4x400 relay, winning in 3:45.25. The 4x100 team again reached a qualifying standard in 47.37 seconds, but already has a better time than that this season.

Sherene Pinnock improved upon her national leading 400 hurdle time, coming in first at 59.56 seconds. Montouya Moore was fourth at 1:04.44, also a qualifying mark, but not an improvement on her earlier time, which has her ranked behind only Pinnock nationally.

Marissa Moseley set a meet record in the 400 meters at 54:04, improving her national qualifying time.

Aletha Hubbard shaved time off her national marks in both the 100 and 200, finishing in 12.21 in the 100 and 25.15 in the 200.

For the men, the 4x100 relay team improved its qualifying time, winning the race in 40.72 seconds. The 4x400 team eclipsed the qualifying standard with a 3:15.42, but has a better time logged this season.

Dominique Matthews won the 200 meters, improving on his earlier marks with a 21.40.

Lamar Baskin also improved in the 110 high hurdles, winning in 14.42 seconds.

The 400 hurdles saw two Bison improve, but not Ross Harlan, the event winner. Harlan won in 52.56 seconds but has a better time this year. Baskin and Tracey Drew finished second and third with improved times of 53.25 and 53.59, respectively.
