In the field events, Behrend had six different athletes place in the top-10.  Dylan Bilka (Seven Fields, PA/Seneca Valley) led the way with a first place finish in the pole vault.  Bilka cleared 4.75m which was also good enough to qualify for ECAC's.  Garrett Shaw (Saxonburg, PA/Knoch) was right behind Bilka at 4.40m for second place.

John Cerminara (Williamsburg, VA/Jamestown) also won an event for the Lions.  Cerminara came in first place in the discus throw at 41.67m.  Seth Weible (Johnsonburg, PA/Johnsonburg) took third in the discus with a distance of 40.40m.  Cerminara competed in the shot put as well, taking third at 14.05m.

Both Billy Cvecko (Erie, PA/McDowell) and Cody Bupp (Warren, PA/Warren) had busy days on the track.  Cvecko took fifth in the 800m run and sixth in the 1500m run with times of 1:58.55 and 4:06.73 respectively.  Bupp competed in two hurdling events.  In the 110m hurdles, Bupp crossed the line at 16.26 for fifth place.  He also took fifth in the 400m hurdles with a time of 58.00.
