In the 4x100 relay, J-D and CBA dueled. The Rams prevailed as Tameras Howard, Navale Taylor, Amani Jackson and Ira Griffin ran to a time of 44.83 seconds. Emmanuel Collins, Deshawn Salter, Gideon Dixon and Kevin Frasor helped the Brothers take second in 45.85 seconds.

Jackson wasn't done, giving J-D another title when he won the long jump, going 19 feet 1/2 inch as Curtis Walker was fifth. Zach Liebman cleared 10 feet for third place in the pole vault.

Taylor, on his own, was fourth in the 200-meter dash. Ryan Peters took second in the shot put (40 feet 3 1/2 inches0, while Brian Roth was sixth. Koy Adams got fifth in the discus, throwing it 110 feet 11 inches.

In the 1,600 sprint medley, where J-D was sixth, Brendan Smith, Nate Fornal and Jared Sayles joined Frasor as CBA took second in 3:56.82, just behind Marcellus, who won in 3:53.25.

Led by Smith, who ran the mile in a top time of 4:30.39, CBA got second in the mile relay as Smith, Jack Lenkiewicz and David Carey finished in 14:52.41, with J-D third in 15:24.98. Will Brower was sixth in the 110 high hurdles and third in the high jump, clearing 5 feet 6 inches in the latter.
