The two-day event, which was held at the Boston University Track and Tennis Center, concluded on Saturday afternoon.

With 157 points, the Bearcat men were second to Albany, who scored 184 points en route to winning their sixth straight conference indoor title. The Binghamton coaching staff, led by head coach Mike Thompson, was named the top staff of the year. Joining Thompson were BU assistant coaches Natilee Dawkins, Annette Acuff and Gabe Fletcher. The Bearcat women's team, meanwhile, was eighth in the meet.

Senior Cazal Arnett, who was the Most Outstanding Men's Track Performer in the previous two America East Indoor meets, anchored the first-place 4x400 relay team which inculded fellow seniors Christian Smith and Andy Haupt as well as sophomore Casey Gilbert. The Bearcat quartet recorded a meet-record time of 3:11.58, breaking Albany's 2009 mark of 3:11.77.

Second-place finishes were recorded by senior Casey Quaglia in the mile (4:06.43) and sophomore Jeff Martinez in the 3,000 (8:16.26). Haupt was third in the 200 (21.76) and Arnett was third in the 400 (47.68).
