Trojans To Host Bruins In Annual Dual Meet On April 27|
April 17, 2013
Two of the most storied programs in track and field history will once again square off as USC prepares to host UCLA in the annual Dual Meet at Loker Stadium on April 27 at 11 a.m. The USC women's team has won five consecutive Dual Meets, while the Trojan men have split their last six meets against UCLA.
The annual USC-UCLA Dual Meet will actually begin on Friday, April 26 with the hammer throw to be contested at West L.A. College beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday the action begins at 11 a.m. on the track with the women's 5000m race and on the field with the women's high jump, women's pole vault and women's javelin throw competitions. The last scheduled event of the day is the men's 4x400m relay, set to begin at 3:30 p.m.
For most of this season both USC's and UCLA's track and field teams have been ranked in the top 25 with USC's men's team currently ranked No. 8, the UCLA men's team No. 13 and the UCLA women's team No. 20. USC's women's team just slipped out of the top 25 this week after a bye week.
The Dual Meet will be the first of three consecutive weekends of high-end action on the USC track as the Trojans will host the conference Multi-Event Championships on May 4-5 and then the Pac-12 Track & Field Championships on May 11-12.
