Robinson hit a mark of 16.46m (54' 0") on his sixth and final attempt to place sixth. He finished fifth in the event at the NCAA Indoor Championships in March.

In the men's hammer throw, senior Vincenzo Chiariello (Staten Island, N.Y.) finished 19th in his first NCAA appearance. He hit a mark of 60.66m (199' 0") on his third and final attempt.
