The 2010-11 USC athletics season has one final act remaining as the men's and women's track and field teams run, jump and throw for national glory in Des Moines, IA, from June 8-11.

The women's squad is led by redshirt senior Nia Ali who will compete in the 100m high hurdles and the high jump.  She won the Pac-10 title for the 100m high hurdles and was named to the Bowerman watch list as one of the top 10 female track athletes in the country.

Freshman Jessica Davis (pictured) will have the most chances to earn points for the women's team as she is entered in three different events (100m, 200m and 4x100m).

The men's program boasts 26 national championships which is more than twice as many as any other school (Arkansas - 12) and the Trojans expect to score highly in this meet led by Pac-10 champion Trey Henderson (hammer throw) and an elite group of sprinters.

Senior 110m hurdlers Brendan Ames (pictured) and Oscar Spurlock will battle each other as the third and fourth ranked competitors in the nation.  The 4x400m relay team featuring Joey Hughes and Josh Mance is expected to challenge for first place.
