Gerstenbacher displayed his talents all weekend for Elizabethtown. The sophomore earned two trips to the top of the podium on Sunday in the 5,000-meter run and the 3,000-meter steeplechase. His time of 9:20.72 in the steeple set a new championship and facility record. He added a pair of golds on Sunday while setting a new championship and facility record. On Saturday, he earned his first gold medal of the meet, running a 3:59.45 in the 1,500-meter run.

Petraskie won three events over the weekend. Petraskie won the long jump (6.72 meters) Saturday and then posted wins in the triple jump (13.56 meters) and the high jump (1.95 meters) Sunday to cap the weekend. The sophomore was also named the Landmark Indoor Field Athlete of the Year.

Howard was one of two Greyhounds that won two titles. He won the 100-meter dash in 10.89 seconds and he captured the 200-meter dash in 21.85 seconds. Howard was also part of both of the Greyhounds' relay teams that finished in second place. He helped Moravian to a runner-up finish in the 4x100-meter relay in 52.61 seconds, and was second place in the final event, the 4x400-meter relay in a time of 3:21.11.

Osman was one of two Greyhounds what won three events on Sunday. The junior won the 400-meter dash in 59.31 seconds and captured the gold for the third straight year in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 1:06.15. She was also on the winning 4x400-meter relay team that ran a 49.61. Osman took home her fourth medal of the meet after she helped the 4x400-meter relay team to a second place finish, crossing the line in 4:08.02.

Banas won the high jump by clearing 1.62 meters (5 feet, 3.75 inches), which matched the championship record, held by three different athletes. Banas also won gold at the indoor championships in February and went on to earn All-American status by finishing seventh at the NCAA Indoor Championships. The gold was the second podium finish of the weekend for Banas, who was sixth in the long jump on Saturday.
