Heading into the final day of the championship, the UTEP men were in third place with 50 points and knew they needed to capitalize on their final performances. A strong component for the men’s team was the distance squad as they dominated the competition in every event.

Leading the sprinters was senior Abiola Onakoya. The Nigerian native took third in the 400m dash with a time of 46.80.

On the field, Mark Jackson defended his title in the triple jump with ease. The All-American delivered a leap of 15.96m (52-04.50) in first attempt. The NCAA Silver Medalist’s showing ranks 13th in the nation.

Kicking off the final day of the C-USA Championships for women was the women’s 4x100m relay as they garnered bronze. The squad that consisted of Anna-Kay James, Janice Jackson, Aiyanna Stiverne, and Nickevea Wilson clocked in a time 45.05 to claim six points for the Miners.
