The top Cornerstone performance came from Isaac Cox who lowered the freshman record in the 800 meters by nearly one second. His time of 1:54.08 eclipsed Derek Scott's mark of 1:54.90 from 2004. Cox pulled clear of the field with 150 meters to go but was edged out at the finish line by Nick Thelen of Aquinas who won in 1:54.02.
Sophomore, Zach Yeo waged a homestretch battle with Davenport's Alex Blem. Yeo took second in 49.78 to Blehm's 49.54.
In the hammer throw, Bryant Langdon added 14 feet to his previous best taking fourth in 139' 7".
