    I agree! That being said and perhaps I'm mistaken, but it seems to be taking an extraordinarily long time for the track and field office to be completed? Isn't our first home meet scheduled to take place March 19-20th for the Trojan Invitational? It would be great if it were to be completed by the time of this event. Just sayin'

    The March 20 meet at SC is a ‘go’. However, I don’t know if spectators will be allowed though. The number of volunteers for the meet is scaled way back to a half dozen or so.

    BTW, SC is hosting the PAC-12 meet this year as well.

    Yeah, spectators will likely be zilch. Even at the high school level, parents of athletes in OC aren't allowed to watch depending on the school district's rules. I have yet to actually watch my son run a xcountry race. I'm hoping that by the time track comes around, I'll get my regular volunteer spot.

    What really sucks for traditional spring sports like track, football is now taking over weight rooms, tracks, and other training resources. Add in soccer, field hockey, and everything else all in 1 semester and it's a cluster f---.

    Yeah, we’re really in uncharted waters here. The pandemic has skewed everything.

    Actually, there will be no fans permitted during the 2021 Track Season. Though, there will be an online viewing to still catch up with the game.

    Don’t understand this considering it’s an outdoor sport.

    Logic does not apply to almost any decision related to pandemic rules.

    You did respond to a bot there and I have yet to see anything official from USC. I do hope they will have attendees even if it's limited.

    My son is competing tomorrow....high school...1st meet in a year. Each athlete can have 2 attendees, athletes have to provide their own transportation, and they must depart the field as soon as their event(s) is over. It's better than nothing but track families show up early, cheer every event, and stay until the meet is over.
