The Women of Troy ran their way to an NCAA outdoor track and field national championship on Saturday, the third time USC has won the title.
The Trojans were led by Anna Cockrell, who won the 100 and 400-meter hurdles, becoming just the second woman to sweep those events. Cockrell’s 45.68 in the 400 bettered her school record. The Trojans also won the 4 X 100 relay, with standout TeeTee Terry coming from behind on the final leg for the win.
USC had 66 points and had the championship clinched heading into the final race. The Trojans finished with 74 points, the most USC has scored since the move to this scoring system in 1985.
This marks national title No. 133 for USC.
Here is a look at some of the highlights.
