The No. 9 ranked men's team qualified eight individual athletes and the 4x400m relay team.  The 400m race, which features three Trojans (Bryshon Nellum, Joey Hughes and Josh Mance), will determine if USC can contend for a record 27th national championship.

The No. 14 rated Women of Troy will enter nine athletes and the 4x100m relay team.  The strength of the women's squad is its throwers, including three competitors in the hammer (Jade Niemeyer, Marissa Minderler and Jenny Ozorai).
