Facing tough wind conditions and several four-year universities, the Harper College men's track and field team performed admirably at the Chicagoland Outdoor Championships hosted by Lewis University. Two athletes met national-qualifying standards, and several others set PR's.

John Walker (/Huntley) qualified for nationals in both the 100 (11.25 seconds) and 200 (22.81 seconds) while personal-best times. In the javelin, Brad Walls (/Palatine) took fifth place with a national-qualifying throw of 46.83m (153' 7").
