Rolan was involved in a dead heat with teammate Rebecca Tarbert in the 100 meters, running 12.37 into a -2.8 meter per second headwind, then won the 200 meters in 25.37 into a -3.3 headwind.

Though aided by a +2.7 tailwind, Rolan won the long jump with a mark of 19-5.5 (5.93m), a mark that moves her to second on the Big Sky performance list.

Horizontal jumper Keshun McGee of the Eagles took care of business in both the long and triple jumps, winning both events.
