Kaitlyn Murtagh won both the 1,600 meters in a time of 5:55.14 and the 3,200 meters in the time of 12:49.97. Ericka Davis won the 400 meters in a time of 1:03.81.

The 400 meter relay team of Wood, Brittany Girton, Emily Crawley and Laura English won in a time of 52.60, while English, Davies, Olivia Humphreys and Emily Gill won the 1,600 meter relay in a time of 4:30.79. The 3,200 meter relay team of Faith Fear, Ivonne Martinez, Gill and Sara Culler were victorious in a time of 10.38.07.

Rachel Egold, Chelsea Vance and Brittany Cox led the Eagles to their second place finish.

Egold grabbed the win in the 800 meters with a time of 2:32.48 and Cox won the discus with a throw of 98-feet-1-inch. Vance won the pole vault event with a height of 7-feet-6-inches.
