USC track & field swept the Pac-12 Track & Field Men's and Women's Field Athlete of the Week awards, the conference announced yesterday.

Senior Eric Sloan repeated as men's field athlete of the week after winning the triple jump at this weekend's Beach Invitational in Long Beach, CA. He beat out an Olympian and a former U.S. triple jump champion in the event with a 53-10.50/16.42m (+1.7). His jump ranked second among all collegiate athletes this season and best in the Pac-12 by more than two feet.

Jones finished first among collegians and third overall in the long jump at the Beach Invitational. She posted a season-best and Pac-12 best 20-8.50/6.31m (+0.0) to finish behind only a 2015 Pan American Games gold medalist and a former Pac-12 champion.

USC has now earned seven Pac-12 weekly Track & Field awards this season heading into its next competition: the Triton Invitational at UCSD.
