Women's Track & Field: Jenny Ozorai: The freshman Ozorai was the USC women's team's final two-time winner and accounted for 13 team points as she won the hammer throw on Saturday with a mark of 212-3 (third all-time by a USC female), then won the discus today with a season-best throw of 153-4 (46.75m) and took second in the shot put with a season-best mark of 45-6.50 (13.88m).
Women's Tennis: Maria Sanchez: Sanchez, a senior, put up a fight in the Pac-10 singles championship bout last weekend, finishing second to Stanford's Kristie Ahn 7-5, 6-1. She then teamed back up with freshman Kaitlyn Christian to do battle against the top-ranked Andersson/Juricova of Cal in the doubles final, pushing through three sets but coming up short of an upset (7-6 (8), 4-6, 6-1) to take the runner-up position in the doubles field as well.
Men's Golf: Martin Trainer: The sophomore Trainer outlasted Oregon State's Alex Moore during a seven-hole playoff and helped lead USC to a convincing one-hole playoff win over Oregon at the 2011 Pac-10 Men's Golf Championships at the Stanford (Calif.) G.C., on Sunday (May 1).Trainer finished at 5-under 275 (68-68-69-70) with four birdies and four bogeys in the round for his third straight top 5 finish and first title as a Trojan.
Men's Tennis: Steve Johnson: Johnson, a junior, became the third Trojan in the past four years to sweep at the Pac-10 Championships last weekend. Johnson swept through the 2011 Pac-10 Singles bracket with nonstop straight-set wins, capped with a redemption win as he faced rival Bradley Klahn of Stanford in the title match. Johnson powered his way to a 7-6 (5), 6-3 victory to seal the singles crown. Johnson extended his impressive singles winning streak to 25 matches. He captured the doubles championship as well, joining with freshman Ray Sarmiento for a 6-1, 6-2 win over UCLA's Hardie/Inbar.
