Nearly everyone was in action this weekend as collegiate throwers faced off at their conference championships and post-collegiate throwers headed to Albuquerque for the U.S. Championships. While Conor McCullough (Princeton) again posted the best mark of the weekend, he has stated he plans on focusing on the outdoor season and will not compete at the NCAA Championships. This leaves the door open for his competitors, which were packed between 21 and 22 meters. Marcel Lomnicky (Virginia Tech) threw 21.88m, but he was one of just 11 D1 throwers over 21 meters, and an impressive four broke 21 meters at the Big 10 Championship. Also impressive was Ryan Loughney (Ashland) who once again broke 22 meters and leads D2. The GLIAC Championship had three ment over 21 meters as the "small school" divisions continue to impress this year.

Jeneva McCall (Southern Illinois) returned over 23 meters to produce the top collegiate women's mark of the weekend. While she is the clear front runner a deep field will fight it our for second place at the NCAA Championships in two weeks. Kelly Closse (Texas Tech) broke 21.50m for the third meet in a row. Both Mele Vaisima (Boise State) and Ida Storm (UCLA) were among a handful of throwers that improved over the 21 meter mark. Liz Murphy (Grand Valley State) also set a new D2 leading mark at 21.19m.

At the US Championships, favorite A.G. Kruger won, while Michael Mai threw a personal best for second place. The women's title went to Amber Campbell in a slight upset over world leader Brittany Riley. Campbell's mark was a new personal best and also the second best mark in any event during the Visa Championship Series.
