Rose-Hulman added two runner-up finishes on the day.  Evans came home second in the triple jump with a leap of 34' 9 1/2", and senior Greg Larmore (Deerfield, Ill.) completed a one-two sweep of the hammer with a throw of 166' 8".

Third-place finishers included Larmore in the discus throw (137' 2"); senior Jeremiah Edwards (Indianapolis/Lawrence North) in the 100-meter dash (11.11 seconds); senior Tyler Hannan (Winchester, Ky./George Rogers Clark) in the 400-meter dash (50.52 seconds); and sophomore Stuart West (La Porte) in the 1,500-meters (4:15.45).
