Anderson was the top Division III finisher in both events, as he took fourth place in the shot put with a toss of 15.56 meters, and fifth place in the hammer throw with a toss of 54.38 meters. His throws on Saturday currently rank him second in the MIAC in the hammer throw and fourth in the shot put.
