Teammate Dillon Simon was named the Outstanding Field Athlete after recording 20 points, winning the shot put and weight throw. Simon broke his own meet record in the shot put, with a toss of 19.22m (63-00.75 ft.).

Bethune-Cookman head coach Donald Cooper received his first Outstanding Coach honor.

“It was amazing,” Cooper said. “I have a group of young guys who just kept believing in what we were doing. When our back was against the wall, they just kept pushing. The young guys stepped in to fill some spots.”

North Carolina A&T State’s Desmond Lawrence set a meet record in the 60m, with a time of 6.64. The previous record of 6.69 was held by Hampton’s Reggie Dixon (2011).
