USC Track And Field Competes At NCAA West Regional Championships

May 26, 2004

Los Angeles -

THE MEET

The USC men's and women's track and field teams travel to Northridge, Calif., this week to compete in the 2004 NCAA West Regional Track and Field Championships hosted by Cal State Northridge at the Matador Track and Field Complex on Friday and Saturday (May 28-29). The meet begins with the women's hammer at 8 a.m. Friday and concludes on Saturday at 6:50 p.m. with the men's 1600m relay.

THE FORMAT

The West Regional will determine entries to the 2004 NCAA Outdoor Championships (June 9-12 at Austin, Tex.). Qualifying standards must be met to advance to the four Regional Qualifying meets around the U. S. (conference champions will automatically qualify). At the Regional Qualifying meet, the top five finishers in each event (top two relays) will advance to the 2004 NCAA Outdoor, with an additional six-to-eight at-large student-athletes to be selected in each event based upon a season-long performance list. There will also be team scoring at each Regional meet, (event scoring eight places, 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1).

USC AT THE NCAA WEST REGIONALS

At last year's inaugural regional championships at Stanford, the USC men took second to UCLA with 92 points, while the Women of Troy took third to UCLA and Stanford with 76 points.

RANKINGS

The USC men are 14th and the Women of Troy sixth in the latest Trackshark.com rankings.

RETURNING CHAMPIONS

USC returns three champions from last year's regionals--the men's 400m relay squad, Allen Simms in the triple jump, and Miya Edmonson in the 200m.
