Majors etched his name in the Washburn track and field record books in his final performance of the Indoor season taking sixth at the MIAA Championships in the shot put with a throw 54’07.75 to break the school record that has stood at Washburn since 1980. The throw was also good enough for a NCAA provisional mark. The former Jeff West Tiger also finished 19th in the weight throw at the MIAA Championships with a toss of 48’03.50.

During the Indoor season Majors recorded 13 Top 20 finishes in the shot put and weight throw combined.

He also registered fourth place finishes in both the shot put and weight throw at the Jayhawk Classic and DeLoss Dodds Invitational.

Freshman year Majors posted a pair of eighth place finishes at the UCM relays and MSSU Invitational in the Indoor season in the shot put and placed sixth in the shot put and discus in the MIAA vs NSIC Showdown in the outdoor season. He also earned MIAA Academic honor roll honors.
