    Wow, Ayden Owens indicating he's transferring from SC is a big loss. This puts even more pressure on Coach Caryl and Staff to recruit top level student athletes in the field events. I have a great deal of respect and admiration for she and her staff, but the multi-events and jumps (especially horizontal) have been a weakness in the program. This needs to change.

    From what I understand this could have been avoided. His decathlon coach at USC either decided to leave or was forced out by Caryl. Ayden himself also had some disagreements with her. From a very good source.

    That’s some of it, but not everything.

    Right now that’s not a good look for the men’s program. I personally would like to know the rest of the story.

    This situation points out once again the instability of our jumps program, which is clearly the weakest link within SC track and field. (Not counting the distances for the men, which is more a reflection of scholarship limits.)
