Coach Richard Alsup commented, "this is Black's first competition on the collegiate level and it turned out quite well."
Black went 6'1 1/2" in the High Jump and recorded 38' 9" feet in the Shot Put. In Long Jump event he fouled his first two jumps. Black's final jump was 17' 3" feet which is two feet under his normal length. Alsup said, "Black needed a jump so he didn't scratch the whole event."
