    Trojans host first of three big meets at Loker Stadium this season

    THIS YEAR: Junior BeeJay Lee had an outstanding first year at USC before injuries cut short his season. He transfered to USC in January from New Mexico and quickly established himself as one of the top sprinters in the country. Tied with teammate Aaron Brown for the Loker Stadium 100m dash record.

    2013: Lee kept getting better and better as the season progressed, culminating with winning the Pac-12 100m dash title with a PR of 10:07 which tied the stadium record. His time tied him for third all-time by a Trojan, fourth all-time by a conference runner and made USC a winner in the event for the seventh time in nine seasons. He also ran the third leg for USC's 4x100m relay team which took second with a time of 39.94 at the Pac-12 Championships. Unfortunately, Lee developed tighness in his right quadricep and finished 26th at the West Regional with a time of 10.50, missing out by .005 seconds of advancing to the quarterfinals. Lee began the season by placing second at the Trojan Invitational in the men's 4x100m relay with teammates Mercado, Stewart and Brown with a time of 40.07. At the Florida Relays on April 5, he came in 11th place in the 100m dash, and ran his first 200m race of the season while placing 18th with a time of 21.33. Placed fourth in the men's 100m Olympic Development race at the Mt. SAC Relays with a wind-aided time of 10.27. Only two collegiate runners participated in this race comprised of mostly professionals, and Lee claimed the top Division 1 time. Took second at the USC-UCLA Dual Meet with a time of 10.25. Won the 4x100m relay at the same meet with his teammates for a time of 40.18.
