Fellow thrower Shawn Johnson captured the discus throw with a heave of 158 feet, 7 inches. Teammate Roman Waldera was fifth with a throw of 147 feet, 8 inches.

The Sioux also captured first place in the 4x400 relay, as the quartet of Jesse Fenstermacher, Kent Luetzen, Reilly Mathiason and Matthew McCreary combined for a time of 3:22.16.
