Gustavus senior Michael Hensch had as good a championship meet as could ever be expected, winning conference titles in the discus, shot put, hammer, and javelin. One day removed from setting a new MIAC record in the hammer, Hensch won the javelin for the third consecutive season. Bethel's Carl Klamm also became a three-time MIAC event champion on Saturday, topping the field in the 400 meters for the third consecutive season with a 00:47.40 finish. Saint John's sophomore Ryan Miller made more MIAC history while successfully defending his MIAC crown in the 100-meter dash. Miller finished the race in 10.39, breaking a program and meet record in the process. Carleton's Lucas Mueller also repeated as champion in the 5,000-meter run, breaking a 39-year-old conference record with a time of 14:22.67 in finals.

The top three individuals in each event and the first-place relay team automatically earn All-Conference honors, and the 4th-through 6th-place finishers in each open event and 2nd-through-6th place relay teams will be named All-Conference Honorable Mention. Saturday's All-Conference performers are listed below, with the Honorable Mention (4-6 individual, 2-6 relay) available in the results.
