Greene won the 300-meter dash in 33.81 seconds to set the program record and ran the anchor leg on the second-place, program-record setting 4x300-meter relay team consisting of Lynval Clarke, Andrew Overbaugh and Jeffery Barnes with a time of 2:17.95. Greene also placed second in the 60-meter hurdles (8.22). Senior Ricardo Estremera and freshman Wilfredo de Jesus Elias, natives of Puerto Rico, placed third in the 3,000-meter run and won the hammer throw with a toss of 181-feet, 8-inches, respectively. The Great Danes also received a first place finish from sophomore Valete Graham in the long jump (23-7.5).

In the women’s competition, junior Jenn Gurrant won the long jump with a leap of 18-feet, 1-inch and was a member of the program-record setting 4x300-meter relay team. The quartet of Gurrant, Melissa Lee, Ashley Vives, and Zuliana Fontanez finished first in 2:47.94. UAlbany received second-place finishes from junior Ritshell Verdier in the shot put (38-11.75) and senior Brenna Militello in the high jump (5-5).
