TUCSON, ARIZONA, May 11-12—What a difference a day makes. The USC women entered the final day of the Pac-12 in dead last with 0 (zero!) points. By the time it had finished, the Trojans had piled up 154 points with 7 event wins, enough to top Oregon by 17 and win a second-straight team title. “We had to create a lot of points on the track because we had so much adversity with weather conditions and time delays,” said USC coach Caryl Smith Gilbert.

The first win came in the 4×1, as USC blistered a 42.45, second in school history behind the world-leading 42.44 cranked out in the heats the day before. Then a big 24 points came with a sweep in the 100H by Chanel Brissett (12.70 PR), Anna Cockrell (12.92) and Mecca McGlaston (13.13). Brissett, a soph, led from the start and steadily forged an impressive lead in winning her second straight, her time tying her for No. 10 among American collegians ever.

Kaelin Roberts led a 1-2-5 in the 400 with her 51.25. More big points came in the dash where Twanisha Terry (11.09) and Angie Annelus (11.17) led a 1-2-3-8 finish. Cockrell defended her long-hurdle crown with a 56.46. Then the sprinters returned in the 200, finishing 1-2-3-6, led by Annelus at 22.71. Finally, the Trojans sealed the win with a meet record 3:29.23 in the 4×4.

Stanford’s Mackenzie Little captured her fourth straight javelin title with her 194-0 (59.13), becoming only the eighth athlete in conference history to win an event 4 times. Alyssa Wilson of UCLA was the meet’s high point scorer, with a win in the discus at 186-9 (56.93) and runner-up finishes in the shot and hammer, all on the same day.
