Johnson finished 21st (40-03.50) while Dynes finished 22nd (38-04.75).

The shot put was just half of the performance, in the weight throw, junior Abby Sudbeck launched a new career best of 58-02.50, which still puts her in sixth for the farthest in school history. She finished sixth in the competition.

Sophomore Allison Torrance also increased her personal best, notching 44-01.25 for a 28th-place finish. Freshmen Madeline Moorhouse, Naomi Wynn, and Alex Dynes, along with unattached Kenzie Shubert, competed in the weight throw for the first time.
