He was not done, as later in the day, he broke the school record in the discus with a throw of 163 feet, 1 inch breaking the mark of 159 feet, 8 inches set by Doug Brown in 1969. That throw is also the 13th best throw in Division III this season.

Also for the Bears, James Duran was second on the 400 meters with a time of 50.57 while Ed Carroll took eighth in the triple jump (41 feet, 11.25 inches) and Jason Cho was eighth in the pole vault (11 feet, 11.75 inches).
