The USC men's track and field team finished 11th overall at the NCAA Championships thanks to a strong closing kick by the 4x400m relay team, which ran the second fastest time in school history to place second in the race.

Wyatt and Mance earned All-American honors for their individual race successes.  Wyatt (pictured below) banked points by finishing third in the men's 400m IH, while Mance came in fifth in the 400m. 

"Naturally I'm disappointed, but we were the top finisher on the men's side among private schools and that is significant," said USC Director of Track and Field Ron Allice.

The women's track and field team ended its campaign 24th at the NCAA Championships.  Dalilah Muhammad was the top performer of the weekend earning All-American honors for her fifth place finish in the 400m IH.

"On the women's side, we just didn't hit on all cylinders all season," added Allice.
