Freshman Raymond King was the lone Wolverine to win an individual event, taking the triple jump in 44-08.25, but the 4x400m Relay of freshmen Anthony Brinkley, Evan Le'Mon and Dominic McAnulty, as well as junior Carlton Sheppard, took gold in 3:25.82. Wesley also got fifth place points in the triple jump from sophomore De'Vaughn Trader (40-07.75) while McAnulty and Brinkley took second and third in the 400m Dash in times of 51.51 and 51.98, respectively.

The Wolverines were dominant in the short sprints, taking second through eighth in the 60m Dash while going second through fifth, as well as seventh in the 200m Dash.  Freshman Da'Jahn Lowery and Patrick Schlosser were second and third, respectively in the 60 in times of 7.06 and 7.11.  Lowery also took third in the 200m Dash at 23.10, placing just behind freshman Markael Jenkins (22.93).
