Sophie Hockran earned a team-high five points by scoring in two events, placing a team-best fifth in the discus while also setting two collegiate personal records.

Hockran marked at 29.10m in the discus before going on to place eighth for one point in the hammer, throwing a collegiate best of 26.83m.

Her other collegiate best, 9.91m, came in the shot put, where fellow thrower Chloe Georges earned herself a fifth place finish by setting a new collegiate personal record of 10.60m.
