The team of David Navarro, Amon Rosenweig, Chris Robinson and Vincent Hogan took third place in the 4×400, while Verona captured three medals in the 3200 meter race: Sean Carney (3rd), Mike Maglione (4th) and Philip Chivily (6th). Hogan also medaled in the 400 meter race.

PJ Jordan and Bill Fauerbach took second and fourth place, respectively, in javelin, and there were medals for Ryan Stanisci (3rd) and Griffin Jordan (6th) in discus. Jason Siegelin and David Navarro medaled in the 800 meters, and Siegelin and fellow captain Mark Walsh medaled in the mile.
