After a big weekend last weekend, many of the top collegiate throwers took the week off. But some were still in action and Jeremy Postin (Florida) led the way. He added more than two meters to his personal best and broke 70 meters for the first time to win the Drake Relays and move to third place on the NCAA rankings. Division 2 thrower Ryan Loughney (Ashland) again produced one of the best results of the weekend at a home meet. However the pros stole the shot with Michael Mai throwing a season's best to beat A.G. Kruger. Elsewhere, Jake Freeman had his first meet after returning from a doping suspension and ended with a throw of 66.17m. Zach Hazen ended up with the third best mark of the weekend after tossing a new personal best of 69.40m. Amanda Bingson (UNLV) had the top women's collegiate result of the weekend, while Jessica Cosby won the UCSD Triton Invitational to produce the top pro mark. Brittany Smith (Illinois State) also had an impressive personal best to place second behind Jeneva McCall (Southern Illinois) at the Drake Relays.
