    If the roster is accurate, SC is loaded with talent on both teams. Hopefully there is an outdoor season.

    Yes. One of the weird benefits of the cancelled season last year. We have a handful of seniors that chose to take their senior year this year as it was lost to the pandemic last year. And yeah, let's hope we actually get an outdoor season this year.

    Indoors wrapped up. "Oregon put up crazy numbers in the men’s championship, going on to win the team title with 79 points — the second-most points in meet history. Arkansas went on to win the women’s team title with 68 points. It’s the Razorbacks' second consecutive team title."

    For the Men: Oregon, LSU, Georgia, Florida, N Carolina A&T....USC was 11th. For the Women: Arkansas, TA&M, LSU, USC (woo hoo!), Georgia.

    Interesting notes from the meet....

    Former USC heptathlete Ayden Owens, who transferred to Michigan, placed 3rd behind 2 Bulldogs. Michigan's official roster bio for Owens doesn't even mention USC, lol.

    Despite finishing 4th in the men's 4x4, Georgia's anchor Elija Godwin ran a 44.21 split. Holy toledo. That's the fastest indoor 400 (both relay and individual) in history. Rai Benjamin for comparison had a 45.94 at the finals in 2018 at College Station, a record at that time.

    UGA's Matt Boling "became the No. 5 all-time collegiate performer by winning the 200m final. A native of Houston, Texas, Boling took off in the second group of the 200m final to clock a 20.19 and edge LSU senior Terrance Laird (20.20) by .01. This tops Boling's previous school record of 20.37, gives him the No. 6 all-time collegiate performance and makes him the fastest 200m runner in the world this year. Only minutes after Boling set the track on fire in the 200m, he returned to the oval for the finale of the men's portion of the meet, the 4x400m relay. Boling started the relay with a split of 45.28" Oh, he also became UGA's 1st All-American finish in the long jump by setting a school record, besting former record holder Champ Bailey. Boling finished 7th overall but he was definitely the Man of the Meet.

    "Kaelin Roberts won her second indoor 400m title, TeeTee Terry scored high in both sprint finals and the women's relay placed second with the fourth-fastest time in school history to lead USC during the final day of competition at the 2021 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. (Tee Tee had a rough day out of the blocks). On the men's side, McKay (Johnson) and Earnie (Sears) had solid showings after overcoming adversity during the competition. McKay had 2 fouls and Earnie had 2 misses but they both responded with huge performances and ended up in second place scoring 8 points each for the Shield!"



    Replay is tonight on ESPNU.
