Senior thrower Joel Nelson (Fargo, N.D.) had a terrific meet as he provsionally qualified for nationals in the hammer throw with an event- winning toss of 170' 11". Other Cobber event winners were Steve Edlund (Sr., Cyrus, MN), who won the 3000 meter steplechase and Chris Goebel (Sr., Albany, MN) who outdistanced the field in the 5000 meters.
