Troy Smith scored 15 points to lead the Hornets. He placed third in the high jump (6′ 0″), fourth in the 300 meter hurdles (42.30), and fifth in the pole vault (11′ 6″).

Other scorers for the Hornets were Tanner Tolbert in the triple jump (4th in 42′ 1″), the long jump (5th in 20′ 5″), and the 200 meter dash (4th in 23.52), Luke Lindsley in the 3200 meter run (3rd in 10:13), James Glasper in the 400 meter dash (6th in 52.42), Dillion Winfrey in the 100 meter dash (7th in 11.59), and Michael Smith in the 800 meter run (6th in 2:10).

“Overall this was not a good meet for us,” commented Hornets coach Steve Oury. “We did have some solid performances mixed in, but we have too many guys still battling nagging injuries. We had Caleb Thomas running on the 400 meter relay team for the first time this year, but he pulled up with the same hamstring injury he’s been battling and was only able to jog the baton to our anchor leg. I’m glad we have a pretty good break until the conference meet. We need the time to get healthy and get some good training in.”
