Western Michigan took sixth in the 4x400-meter relay team with Naiomi Dulaney, Kaniya Weatherspoon, Davonne Bolden and Lige combined to run a time of 3:51.88. Bolden also turned in a personal-best time of 25.26 seconds in the 200-meter dash.

Junior Jade McKnight was WMU's lone scorer in the field events, taking eighth in the long jump with a distance of 5.37m (17' 7.50"). Fellow junior Daya Wagh scored in 5,000-meter run after running a time of 17:46.09 to take eight on Friday.
