USC’s men took fifth place in the NCAA  track & field championship and the USC women took seventh, marking the first top 10 finish for both squads since the women were eighth and the men 10th in 2009.

MEN’S:
Highlighted by Andre De Grasse’s showstopping performance, USC men’s track & field finished fifth, scoring 40.5 points, the fifth-most ever for the program under the current scoring system. The Trojans were led by the junior sprinter’s eye-popping sweep of the 100m and 200m titles as well as Conor McCullough’s individual crown in the hammer, but they also received points from three freshmen, paving the road for future growth in the team competition.

WOMEN’S:

USC finished seventh overall with 34 points, its most scored at the NCAA Championships since scoring 38.5 points in 2006. The seventh-place finish was also USC’s highest since taking sixth in 2011.
