The new John McKay Center celebrated Halloween with its first ever pumpkin carving contest put on by Kristy Morrell, USC's sports nutritionist, the Trojan Athletic Senate and the SAAS staff.
Each athletic program was given a team pumpkin to carve during the week, and they were then displayed on the tables right outside of the highly festive and decorated John McKay Center patio. Student-athletes were then able to vote on their favorite pumpkin as they feasted on tacos, decorated cupcakes and mingled with other athletes.
Men's volleyball (pictured) and track and field tied in votes and took home the award for best pumpkin!
