USC Runs 6th-Fastest Men's 4x400m Time In School History
April 3, 2010
The USC men's 4x400m relay team posted the sixth-fastest time in school history today (April 3) to close out the action at the 83rd Annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays held in Austin, Texas.
The Trojan quartet of sophomore Amechi Egbe, sophomore Joey Hughes, senior Nate Anderson and freshman Reggie Wyatt placed third in the men's 4x400m relay race with a time of 3:03.26, good for sixth place on USC's all-time list. The last time USC ran a faster 1600m relay was at the NCAA Championships in 2006 when Kai Kelley, Jeff Garrison, Da'Sean Cummingham and Lionel Larry had a time of 3:03.08. USC battled back and forth with Baylor (3:02.70) the whole race for second and third place, while Texas A&M won the race with a time of 3:01.55. Entering this week's action, these three times would rank as the top three this collegiate season.
In the women's 100m HH, Clarke placed fourth with a season-best time of 13.21. In the men's 110m HH, junior Oscar Spurlock placed third with a wind-aided time of 13.86, while junior Brendan Ames took fifth with a wind-aided time of 13.91, once again his best time as a Trojan. In the intermediate hurdles, Muhammad placed fourth with a season-best time of 58.00, 1.48 seconds behind the winner Texas' Angele Cooper whom she defeated by a second at the Trojan Invitational on March 20. Wyatt came in fifth in the men's 400m IH with a time of 51.68.
Also on the track today, sophomore Blake Shaw placed third in the one-mile run with a time of 4:07.41, while recruit Lauren Blackburn placed fourth in the girls 100m HH with a time of 13.91w.
In the men's pole vault 'A Section' redshirt senior Brandon Estrada tied for ninth with a clearance of 16-11.0 (5.1m). Redshirt senior Brysun Stately placed eighth in the women's pole vault 'A Section' with a clearance of 13-1.75 (4.01m).
Junior Kristine Busa placed 12th in the women's javelin 'A Section' as she had a first throw of 157-2 (47.90m), then fouled twice and did not advance to the final round.
Freshman Alitta Boyd took 11th place in the women's triple jump 'A Section' with a jump of 41-2.50 (12.56m). It was her first triple jump competition of the season and that mark ties her for seventh place on USC's all-time women's triple jump list with Brittany Daniels.
