She destroyed her previous record by almost a full second with a time of 57.75 to win the 400m. In the 200m, she finished third with a new indoor school record of 25.39. The previous record was held by Alexis Arnold at 26.03 back in 2012.

Rachael Kraske also had a historic day, setting new records in the 60m and 60m hurdles. Kraske finished second in the 60m hurdles with a time of 8.95. In the prelims, she recorded a time of 8.92, which breaks her own record of 8.95 set in 2015. She placed seventh in a 60m with a time of 7.97, but ran a 7.89 in the prelims, which is a new indoor school record. The previous record was set by Emily Wyatt in 2013 at 7.92.

Dakota Buhler was the final record breaker on the day, placing third in the triple jump with a mark of 36-11.00. Kelsey Baron held the previous record at 36-02, which was set back in 2003.

Asia Greene won the women's long jump with a mark of 18-11.25, while Jacoby Wolfe won the men's high jump at 6-07.00. Ben Hortaleza placed fourth in the men's long jump with a mark of 21-06.25.
