Alexander Ziegler (Virginia Tech) threw a season's best to produce the best collegiate throw of the weekend. Many of the top throwers rested this week in preperation for next weekend's conference championthips, but Conor McCullough (Princeton) and many of the best Division II throwers were in action. McCullough threw 72 meters to win the Ivy League title, and both Ryan Loughney (Ashland) and Matt Royer (Indianapolis) were over 67 meters in the D2 ranks. A.G. Kruger threw a U.S. leading mark of 75.66m in post-collegiate action. On the women's side even fewer top collegiate throwers were in action. Pro Jessica Cosby once again broke 70 meters and Amy Haapanen threw a personal best of 69.34m.
