Track And Field Squads Gear Up For Stanford Invitational

March 26, 2003

The USC men's and women's track and field teams head to Palo Alto this weekend to compete in the 29th annual Stanford Track & Field Invitational, which features several thousand of the nation's top collegiate and high school athletes taking center stage at Cobb Track & Angell Field.

Last year's Stanford Invitational produced more than 200 NCAA automatic or provisional qualifiers. That list included 2002 NCAA champion Angela Williams of USC and Ron Bramlett of Alabama. USC will again bring a strong corps of sprinters including defending 200 NCAA meter champion Natasha Mayers, All-American high hurdler Ryan Wilson and triple jump stars Allen Simms (the 2003 NCAA indoor champ) and Julien Kapek (third at last year's NCAAs in the triple). Several Pac-10 teams will be competing including Stanford, California, and Washington State from the Pacific Northwest.
