In the field, Rietmann posted a 2nd place finish with a throw of 36′ 1 1/4″ and a 4th place finish in the discus with a throw of 96’3″, both personal bests. Tess McGill had a season best jump of 31′ 5.5″ in the triple jump for a 4th place finish and a personal best jump of 15′ 2″ in the long jump, good enough for 8th place overall.
